    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is looking for a dynamic and energetic leader to join their Senior Executive Service (SES) Corps. The SES is comprised of the men and women charged with leading the continuing transformation of government. These leaders possess leadership and executive skills and share a broad perspective of government and a public commitment that is grounded in the U. S. Constitution.

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is committed to detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse within the U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID). In addition to providing oversight of USAID, OIG provides oversight of the U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF), the Inter-American Foundation (IAF), and Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). Finally, OIG has statutory authorization to conduct reviews, investigations, and inspections for the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and enters into agreements with OPIC for additional oversight work. OIG audits and investigations lead to significant recoveries, the identification of cost-savings opportunities, and program improvements that directly enhance the U.S. Government's ability to extend development assistance; support economic growth; combat the spread of disease; promote democratic reform; and address food insecurity to countries around the world.

    Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the OIG maintains international audit and investigative offices throughout the world with offices in Cairo, Egypt; Dakar, Senegal; Manila, Philippines; Pretoria, South Africa; San Salvador, El Salvador; Port au Prince, Haiti; Islamabad, Pakistan; Kabul, Afghanistan; Tel Aviv, Israel; Frankfurt, Germany; and Kampala, Uganda. The OIG is centrally located in downtown Washington, D.C. at the prestigious Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center on 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW (Federal Triangle Metro – Blue, Orange and Silver Lines). The office is within walking distance of some of Washington’s best restaurants, historical theaters, shops, national monuments, and museums.
