2. INTERIOR DEPT INSPECTOR GENERAL STILL HOLDS PILE OF DAMAGING DOCUMENTS

The Office of Inspector General of the United States Department of the Interior has a large stack of documents regarding its investigation of the Island Operating Company et al. This was the primary investigation of the situation involving the unhealthy relationships between employees of the Minerals Management Service and the companies they regulate.

The very brief IG report was published, eventually, in May 2010, here:

Or here:

But there was also a large pile of several hundred pages of supporting papers that casts light into several less explored corners of this investigation.

The Department of the Interior has not published these supporting papers on its website, and to the best of my knowledge, no news organization has obtained these documents. However, you can request an electronic copy of these documents by sending a request to:

Note: ask for a copy of the supporting documentation for the investigation into Island Operating Company, et al.
