Career Spans 42 Years Of Military And Civilian Service

The Honorable Calvin L. Scovel III, Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), will be retiring from Federal service effective January 31, 2020.

Mr. Scovel (pictured) is DOT’s sixth and longest serving Inspector General. Appointed by President George W.

As DOT’s Inspector General, Mr. Scovel directed a staff of more than 400 employees to provide the Secretary of Transportation and Congress with independent and objective reviews of the Department’s operations and programs.

During his 13-year tenure, the Office of Inspector General (DOT-OIG) helped the country realize a safer, more efficient, and more effective national transportation system. DOT-OIG’s groundbreaking audits and investigations have homed in on fraud, waste, and abuse and led the Department to implement numerous safety enhancements. Mr. Scovel was also frequently sought for his independent and evidence-based insights into the Department’s safety and management challenges. During his time as Inspector General, he appeared as a witness in 76 hearings before oversight and appropriations committees of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

When announcing his retirement, Mr. Scovel stated that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is retiring to focus on his treatment and his family.

“I leave my office with unbounded pride in all that our staff has accomplished on behalf of the Department and the American people,” said Mr. Scovel.
