These offices include Members of Congress, Committees, House Officers, and the Inspector General, and carry out responsibilities ranging from representational duties on behalf of congressional districts, legislative activity, oversight of federal agencies, and the administration and operation of the processes and functions of the House.

While over half of the employees work in Washington, D.C., there are House employees working for Members in every state, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia.
