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.
