Scott Deyo, the Ombuds for the Department of Defense, Office of Inspector General, has published an overview of his office, which opened just five months ago. Reporting directly to the Inspector General, the Ombuds is fully authorized to engage all members of the DoD OIG community at all levels. Deyo plans to draft a charter for the office, implement a communication plan, meet on-on-one with senior managers, develop outreach materials, create a confidential, online submission and evaluation forms, and prepare mid-year and annual reports.
