Brian D. Miller - Inspector General
The U.S. Senate confirmed Brian D. Miller as the Inspector General of the U.S. General Services Administration on July 22, 2005.
As Inspector General, Miller leads more than 300 auditors, special agents, lawyers, and support staff in conducting nationwide audits and investigations. As a national leader in the fight against procurement fraud, Miller participates in the U.S. Attorney General’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force and partners with federal, state, and local officials to share information to detect, investigate, and prevent procurement, Recovery Act, and grant fraud. Miller is a frequent speaker at conferences, task force meetings, and regional working groups, and he testifies regularly before Congress.
Before becoming Inspector General, Miller worked for the U.S. Department of Justice for 15 years, beginning in the Office of Policy Development. Attorney General Janet Reno appointed him as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, where he concentrated on procurement, grant, and health care fraud cases. In 2001, he served as the Senior Counsel to the Deputy Attorney General and Special Counsel for Health Care Fraud for the U.S. Department of Justice. In 2002, he returned to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to serve as Counsel to the United States Attorney, while continuing grand jury, trial, and appellate responsibilities as an Assistant U.S. Attorney.
Miller strives to provide aggressive, strategic, and creative leadership by developing new ways to fight fraud. In 2010, he established the Government Infrastructure Protection Initiative within his Office of Investigations to protect the federal procurement process and supply chain from the dangers associated with counterfeit products. In this effort, he partnered with the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center. In 2008, he created a forensic auditing unit and sponsored federal forums to promote forensic auditing as a tool to analyze databases and to detect fraud. In 2006, Miller was named Vice Chair of the National Procurement Fraud Task Force, a task force of the Department of Justice, law enforcement offices, and several inspectors general. As co-chair of the Legislation Committee, he played a key role in amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation to require contractors to report overpayments and crimes. He also was a principal author of a legislative and regulatory reform white paper, which resulted in legislation, regulation, and a national debate on issues related to procurement fraud.
Miller has received notable recognition for his service as Inspector General. He was recognized by Ethisphere magazine as the 12th “most influential person in business ethics” by a worldwide panel of experts. He was named among “Those Who Dared: 30 Officials Who Stood Up for Our Country,” a special report of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a national advocacy organization. Miller also received the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award.
Miller has a Juris Doctor from the University of Texas.
