IG Milton A. Mayo Jr. Retires from federal service after 31 years of service in the IG Community

On July 1, 2022, Milton A. Mayo, Jr. retired from federal service after 11 years as the EEOC Inspector General and 31 years of service to the Inspector General community. Inspector General Mayo began his public service career as a field examiner with the National Labor Relations Board. In 1991 he received an appointment as a special agent in the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Office of Inspector General. Since then, he has served in several positions, including Senior Criminal Investigator, Assistant Inspector General for Investigations, Deputy Inspector General, and Acting Inspector General. Mr. Mayo was appointed to the permanent position of Inspector General of the EEOC in June 2011.

IG Mayo made significant contributions to the IG community not only through his leadership of the EEOC Office of Inspector General, but also through his leadership and service in the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) and the Association of Inspectors General (AIG).  In our office, IG Mayo transformed the OIG into a model workplace that proactively protects the EEOC from fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement and is innovative in conducting programmatic and operational oversight. Those of us who were fortunate enough to work with him will miss his leadership, counsel and mentorship.
