Mayor Williams Commends Work of DC Inspector General Charles C. Maddox, Jr. Recognizes Enormous Contribution to the Office and to the District

(Washington, DC) Following the unexpected announcement this morning of the resignation of DC Inspector General Charles C. Maddox, Mayor Anthony A. Williams praised the work of the Inspector General and reiterated his support for Maddox even as he faces criticism from some members of the City Council.

"Charlie Maddox has made an enormous contribution to the improvement of the District government. His office has issued hundreds of reports and reviews of District departments and independent agencies, and he has helped to make agency directors and line employees more efficient and more accountable. He has always conducted himself in a highly ethical and professional manner, and he has brought the Inspector General’s Office to a higher level of performance than at any time in its history," said Mayor Williams.

The Inspector General’s Office was established in 1985. Its powers and responsibilities were substantially revised by Congress in 1995. The 108-member office conducts independent fiscal and management audits, inspections and investigations. The IG works closely with the federal General Accounting Office and the US Attorney’s Office, oversees the preparation of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and conducts an annual operational audit of procurement activities.

"Inspector General Maddox has shown strength and courage under fire. He has remained true to his beliefs and will leave this position with the knowledge that he has improved not only the operation of his own office, but the operation of the entire District government. He has recovered over $20 million for the taxpayers of the District and brought about eight times that amount in monetary benefits. And he has done this while maintaining the highest levels of professionalism and integrity," Mayor Williams added.

"I am pleased that Charlie Maddox will leave this post on his own terms and with adequate advance notice so that we will have sufficient time to identify a candidate to fill the position, thereby minimizing the potential disruption to the work now underway in his office. On a personal note, it has been a pleasure to work with Charles Maddox and I wish him the best as he enters private law practice in the District," said Mayor Williams.

Maddox has announced that his resignation will take effect on December 31, 2003.
