Brian Miller has been appointed inspector general for the General Services Administration, the acquisition agency announced today. Miller was nominated by President Bush last fall; the Senate confirmed his nomination July 22.
GSA administrator Stephen Perry said the agency is fortunate to have someone of Miller's experience heading the oversight office.
'His experience and background make him an ideal choice to lead the office whose mission is to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness within GSA and to prevent and detect fraud, waste and abuse in agency programs and operations,' Perry said.
Miller has more than a dozen years of experience as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia where he participated in many high-profile cases, including the prosecutions of Sept. 11 terror suspect Zacarias Moussaoui and American Taliban soldier John Walker Lindh. Before that, he served as a senior attorney adviser in the Office of Policy Development at the Justice Department, and as deputy general council for the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.
Miller replaces former IG Daniel Levinson, who left GSA June 11 to become inspector general at the Health and Human Services Department.
