Harold Damelin -- Department of the Treasury
Inspector General

Harold Damelin, a Washington, D.C. attorney and graduate of Boston College and Boston College Law School, was sworn in as Treasury Inspector General on April 4, 2005. As Inspector General, Damelin leads the efforts of the Office of Inspector General to keep the Secretary and the Congress informed on the effectiveness and efficiency of Treasury programs and operations, to conduct audits and to investigate allegations of waste, fraud and abuse. Prior to becoming Treasury Inspector General, Damelin served as Inspector General of the Small Business Administration for two years. He came to the Inspector General community with over thirty years of litigation experience in both the Federal government and in private practice. Before entering private practice in 1986, Damelin served for thirteen years as a Federal prosecutor with the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, and as an Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia. From 1986 to 1995, he was a partner in two law firms where he specialized in white collar criminal defense. In 1995 Damelin rejoined the public sector, serving for two years as Staff Director and Chief Counsel for the U. S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, and then for a year as Senior Counsel to the U. S. Senate's Special Investigation Committee which examined allegations of wrongdoing surrounding the 1996 federal election campaigns. In 1998, Damelin returned to private practice for five years with the Washington, D.C. firm of Powers, Pyles, Sutter and Verville, where he headed the firm's fraud and abuse practice group. He left that firm in 2003 to become the Inspector General at the Small Business Administration.
