Washington, DC - GSA Administrator Stephen A. Perry today welcomed the agency's new Inspector General, Dan Levinson.

"I am pleased to have Dan Levinson enter into this important position," said Administrator Perry. "He brings a high level of integrity and managerial skill to the Office of the Inspector General."

Levinson was sworn in as Inspector General by The Honorable H. Robert Mayer, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. As Inspector General, Levinson will be responsible for promoting economy, efficiency, and effectiveness. Levinson will also be responsible for detecting fraud, waste, and mismanagement through a comprehensive nationwide audit and investigative program covering GSA's internal operations and external contractors.

"I am honored by this appointment and look forward to working with Administrator Perry and the entire GSA team to enhance the agency's critical role in the effective and efficient administration of the Federal government's operations," said Levinson.

Levinson previously served in the government's Executive Branch as Deputy General Counsel of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, General Counsel of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, and Chairman of the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board. Over the course of a 10-year career in private law practice, he represented corporate and non-profit organizations in a wide variety of administrative, legislative, and appellate matters.

Levinson is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Southern California, and received his law degree from Georgetown University. He lives with his wife and their two daughters in Chevy Chase, MD.
