Outgoing EPA inspector general tells of search for accountability (3/6/06)

"Nikki Tinsley, inspector general of the Environmental Protection Agency since 1997, retired from the federal government last Friday after almost 35 years of public service. An ambitious leader within the inspector general community, Tinsley shared her reflections on the past decade as a federal auditor in an interview with Government Executive.

In April 2003, her office released a grants management plan to guide EPA and help it serve as a model for grant-making at other agencies. Last October, a governmentwide effort to increase accountability for the $450 billion the federal government dispenses in grants culminated with the publication of a best practices guide developed with 14 inspectors general, GAO, the Office of Management and Budget and representatives from several state and local governments.
