Meet the IG
The U.S. Senate confirmed Brian D. Miller as the Inspector General of the U.S. General Services Administration on July 22, 2005. Prior to becoming Inspector General, Mr. Miller worked for the U.S. Department of Justice for 15 years, beginning in the Office of Policy Development. Attorney General Janet Reno appointed him as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, where he concentrated on procurement, grant, and health care fraud cases. In 2001, he served as the Senior Counsel to the Deputy Attorney General and Special Counsel for Health Care Fraud for the U.S. Department of Justice. In 2002, he returned to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to serve as Counsel to the United States Attorney, while continuing grand jury, trial, and appellate responsibilities as an Assistant U.S. Attorney.
As Inspector General, Mr. Miller leads over 300 auditors, special agents, lawyers, and support staff in conducting nationwide audits and investigations. Mr. Miller is a frequent speaker at conferences, task force meetings, and regional working groups, and he testifies regularly before Congress.
Mr. Miller provides aggressive, strategic, and creative leadership by developing new ways to fight fraud. Under his leadership, his office investigated and reported on GSA’s wasteful Western Regions Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, the effects of which have reverberated throughout the federal government. To produce this result, Mr. Miller spearheaded the cross-cutting use of multidisciplinary teams, which transformed the way his office handles highly complex and high impact investigations and became a model for other offices to follow.
As a leader in the fight against procurement fraud, Mr. Miller participated in the President’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force from its inception through 2013 and partnered with federal, state, and local officials to share information to detect, investigate, and prevent procurement, Recovery Act, and grant fraud. In 2008, he created a forensic auditing unit and sponsored federal forums to promote forensic auditing as a tool to analyze databases and to detect fraud. In 2006, Mr. Miller was named Vice-Chair of the National Procurement Fraud Task Force, a task force of the Department of Justice, law enforcement offices, and several inspectors general. He played a key role in amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation to require contractors to report overpayments and crimes. He also was a principal author of a legislative and regulatory reform white paper, which resulted in legislation, regulation, and a national debate on important issues related to procurement fraud.
