Postal Service Inspector General David C. Williams will retire in late February.
Williams has led the Office of Inspector General (OIG), an independent agency of the Postal Service, for 12 years. The OIG’s mission is to help preserve the Postal Service’s integrity through independent audits and investigations.
In addition to his work as inspector general, Williams has led government-wide efforts to enhance transparency for federal spending and improve the detection of fraud and waste.
He also has received several honors, including an award for strengthening federal information technology.
“I have come to greatly respect both the mission and the dedicated people of the Postal Service,” Williams wrote in a recent message announcing his retirement. “In my eyes the men and women here are quiet American heroes.”
