Who will oversee the IGs?

In response to "Senators join call for IGs' independence," Who is going to oversee the inspectors general to ensure they are helping the government and the country, not throwing roadblocks and spikes in the way of government at every opportunity? When you are hired specifically to find things wrong, you will find things wrong or you won't have a job. The IGs should be hired by and work for the head of each agency. Funding should be managed by the head of that agency as a separate line item. IGs should go through special training to ensure they are helping the government agency, not hindering their operations.
