I am a former auditor with the U.S. Government Accountability Office. Ask me anything!
Obligatory these opinions are my own statement.
I worked as an auditor for the GAO for about 12 years before deciding in a career change, a couple of months ago. I immensely enjoyed my time with GAO and believe in the mission wholeheartedly, which made leaving that much more difficult.
However, with recent events, I thought my time as a "government watchdog" may be interesting to some folks, so feel free to ask me anything, and I will respond the best I can and am able.
Proof: From one of my last paystubs
A lot of you have asked me which reports I worked on. While I'm obviously not about to list every report I ever worked on, here's one of the more recent high-profile ones that I worked on, as well as the director's testimony that took place as a result of the report.
Edit: Headed to bed, keep the questions coming and I'll try to answer them as I'm able. I really do appreciate all of the thoughtful inquiries and hope I have been able to give you some insight into the government auditing process, thus far.
