Audit Event category icon

David House serves as Special Agent in Charge (SAC) for Infrastructure Coordination for the Department of Interior’s Office of Inspector General (OIG). SAC House has served in a variety of roles with the OIG – he was the Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Northern Region in St. Paul, MN; was Deputy Director for the Recovery Oversight Office; was a senior case agent in Hawaii, and was the Special Agent in Charge for the Central Region in Denver, CO. He served for several years as a Special Agent in Charge for the General Services Administration OIG in San Francisco, CA and before that, served as a US Army CID Agent for 12 years.

Throughout SAC House’s long tenure with DOI OIG, he has enjoyed working closely with tribes, territories, and Compact nations in the Pacific. He was instrumental in establishing the first capacity-building effort with audit offices throughout the Pacific, which led to several impactful investigations in both U.S. territories and Compact nations. SAC House provided many fraud training programs to audit offices over the years and was instrumental in establishing the first “Lakewood Experience” training seminar in Colorado.

As SAC Infrastructure Coordinator, David aims to use oversight of Bi-Partisan Infrastructure Law programs to reintroduce the Department of Interior OIG’s presence in the Pacific through a capacity-building initiative. David has a BA from Averett University in Business and he is a Certified Fraud Examiner.

The potential for bribes and kickbacks, whether in the private or public sector, is inherent in virtually every business transaction. Recent research conducted by a major financial institution revealed that an estimated one trillion dollars a year is paid in bribes worldwide. Bribes, kickbacks and other kinds of payoffs constitute types of fraud, often referred to as corruption. 

Get a strong introduction to (a) the provisions of law pertaining to fraud and corruption in the forms of bribes, kickbacks and other types of payoffs; (b) activities that are particularly susceptible to such forms of fraud; (c) the short-and long-term impact; and (d) the methods used to make illegal payments.

Focus on strengthening your ability to recognize the indicators of bribes, kickbacks and other types of payoffs in the procurement area and on your ability to collect evidence that they may have occurred or have occurred. Participate in case studies involving the fraudulent activities of bribes, kickbacks and other types of payoffs.
