Late last year, BGR released a report about the search for a new Inspector General in New Orleans. Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans was involved in the creation of office of Inspector General in 2006. We helped ensure a stable, secure source of funding for the Inspector General and made sure the office maintained its independence from the entities it is tasked to oversee.
A strong office of Inspector General provides oversight to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse of tax payer dollars. The Inspector General also promotes efficiency and effectiveness in city programs and operations.
Now we turn our focus to the search for a new candidate to lead the New Orleans' office of Inspector General. The enclosed BGR report contains useful information for citizens following along in this crucial process.
