Summary:
The job of the Inspector General (IG) is crucial - to expose fraud, waste and abuse in federal agencies. Yet the existing literature on Inspectors General is scarce. This book addresses this lack by making a study of the Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the significant contribution which those in the role have made to the efficient operation of the US government.
