WASHINGTON, D.C.—Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen released a statement on President Trump’s intent to nominate Dr. Joseph Cuffari as Inspector General at the Department of Homeland Security.
Office of Inspector General
A report released today by our Inspector General notes the “significant progress” we’ve made since I’ve been Secretary to address DHS’s many management challenges.
The Department of Homeland Security depends on its strongest asset – its people – to fulfill its diverse and important missions. Every day, the men and women of this Department work together to ensure that our programs, operations, and other activities are running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We’ve made great strides to improve what we do, be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, and uphold the public trust. One measure of our success in this regard is our significant reduction in the number of open recommendations from the Office of Inspector General (OIG). By implementing better practices and resolving the OIG’s recommendations, DHS has become a more responsive and effective agency.
