It Audit Activist
Regulations are put in place for a reason and organisations  need to abide by them and need to be constantly monitered by audits. Remember the failed financial organisations and financial markets which brought everything down. I still feel some audits would have caught the problems at the earlier stages....just my two cents

Re: Raising risk awareness
Perhaps we should even give Congress a little bit of credit for recognizing the need to have an Inspector General (the office is relatively new; Theresa worked for three IGs who preceded her)

Raising risk awareness
Fascinating picture of an auditor in a difficult position, David. It's amazing Theresa has lasted as long as she has as Inspector General. Also, how many times have we all understood that "when something is really wrong with an organization, plenty of people are aware of the problem." Yet it's impossible to do anything about it. Instead of embedded journalists, perhaps some military operations, oarticularly invasions of other countries, should have embedded auditors.

Would you want this job?
Must be quite a challenge to stand apart for the partisan rancor in Congress.
