Office of the Inspector General
The Inspector General Team

The County Council appoints an Inspector General selected from a list of qualified nominees submitted to the Council by an Inspector General Nominating Panel consisting of 3 to 5 County residents.

The Inspector General serves for a term of 4 years, which begins on July 1 of the third year after an Executive and Council are elected, and ends on June 30 of the third year after the next Executive and Council are elected. An Inspector General serves no more than two full 4-year terms, not including any time served as Inspector General to complete an unexpired term.

The Inspector General may, subject to appropriation and all applicable merit system laws and regulations, appoint as term employees the staff of the Office of the Inspector General. The term of each employee ends when the next Inspector General takes office. The Inspector General may also, subject to appropriation, retain project staff or other consultants by contract.

Legal Internship Program with the Office of the Inspector General

The Office of the Inspector General law student internship program provides an opportunity to learn about County Government and the work of the Office of the Inspector General.  During the summer of 2015, the OIG hosted two George Washington University Law School students: Chasel Lee and Mariana Oria.

Legal interns research County and State law, analyze complaints, participate in staff meetings, conduct interviews and factual research, and communicate with complainants.  They may write case summaries, memos, and draft reports.

Interested in more details about the OIG's legal internship program or submitting your resume for consideration?  Please e-mail Mollie Habermeier at or call her at 777.240.8245.
