“I’m excited to have a robust discussion with Mr. Martin to continue to help raise awareness of the good work that federal inspectors general do, and the key oversight they provide in pursuing integrity and public trust in government operations,” said Binder.

He previously served as Deputy Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Justice. From 2001 to 2003 he served as Counselor to the IG and Special Counsel to the IG. Before joining the DOJ OIG, Martin served 13 years at the U.S. Sentencing Commission, including 6 years as the Commission’s Deputy Staff Director, upon its creation in 1985, helping develop the first set of federal sentencing guidelines.

Martin began his professional career as a reporter with the Greenville (S.C.) News. He holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from The Pennsylvania State University and a Juris Doctor for The Georgetown University Law Center.
