Mazer is Obama's choice for DHS' IG

Roslyn Mazer is President Barack Obama’s nominee for inspector general of the Homeland Security Department, the White House announced July 19.

Mazer is currently the IG of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). She manages inspections, audits and investigations of ODNI’s programs and operations. She is also serving concurrently as chair of the Intelligence Community Inspectors General Forum.

The previous DHS IG, Richard Skinner, retired in March. Read about Skinner.

Mazer has worked in oversight jobs throughout government. She held senior positions at the Justice Department from 1993 to 2009 and was in the IG’s office there for seven years. There, she led reviews of the FBI’s use of national security letters and conducted investigations of misconduct by high level department officials and employees.

Mazer also served as associate deputy attorney general and as the attorney general’s representative to the Interagency Security Classification Appeals Panel.

“I am grateful that these talented and dedicated individuals have agreed to take on these important roles and devote their talents to serving the American people,” Obama said in a statement.

Mazer must be confirmed by the Senate for the DHS IG position.
