Inspector General Vacancies Worry Comptroller General, Rep. Calls Vacancies UnacceptableTweet
February 29, 2012
Yesterday, the Comptroller General of the United States, Gene L. Dodaro, appeared before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to discuss a new report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on federal agencies and programs "which have duplicative goals or activities."
At the hearing, Dodaro was asked by Representative Jason E. Chaffetz (R-UT) about the alarming number of vacancies at inspectors general offices across the government, a topic POGO has been following closely.
"To have four of these major departments without an IG—one of them, the State Department, for more than three years—I think is totally unacceptable," Rep. Chaffetz said.
