These Districts and the required oversight over USAO by EOUSA has been repeatedly placed in the custody of OIP/OIP Compliance. Unfortunately, it appears neither USAO, EOUSA nor OIP could manage it to proficiency for compliance with the statutes. I appreciate your commitment to demystifying the operations of government by sharing this information from your offices with the public.
