The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform recently sent a letter to President Trump urging him to fill several empty Inspector General positions at various federal agencies.

According to the letter, there are currently 11 federal agencies that do not have an Inspector General. Among them are the Central Intelligence Agency, Department of Energy and Department of Defense.

“Independent oversight of federal agencies by IGs is essential for ensuring agencies serve the public in the most effective manner possible. Therefore, we respectfully request that you nominate capable and independent individuals for the remaining vacant Inspector General positions expeditiously,” wrote the Committee Chairmen in their letter.

A copy of the letter is included below.
