May 23, 2007 -- WASHINGTON -- Acting Public Printer William H. Turri announces the appointment of Tony Ogden to Inspector General for the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Ogden has been the Acting Inspector General since October 2006. The move is effective immediately. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) offers an independent and objective means of keeping the Public Printer and the Congress fully informed about problems and deficiencies relating to the administration and operation of GPO.
"Tony has done a tremendous job in his current position of serving the needs of GPO and Congress and I am happy to promote him to Inspector General," said Acting Public Printer William H. Turri. "Tony has an extensive knowledge of the agency and I am confident his leadership will continue to uphold the high standards set for the office."
Ogden has been with the GPO's Office of Inspector General for more than three years. Prior to being named Acting Inspector General, he was the Deputy Inspector General and served as the senior legal and policy advisor to the OIG. Prior to joining GPO, Ogden was the Litigation and Compliance Counsel for the Tobacco Project at the National Association of Attorneys General. Ogden is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Colorado. Ogden has also worked as an attorney in private practice, focusing primarily on civil litigation and workers' compensation matters. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Denver College of Law.
"I am encouraged by the cooperation between GPO managers and the OIG and trust that the spirit of cooperation will only improve. I remain humbled by the dedication and commitment of the OIG staff," said Ogden. "Since joining the OIG, I am constantly reminded of the enormous contribution that each of them make on a daily basis. I look forward to meeting the challenges ahead with this outstanding team of professionals."
