Chairman Hastings Letter to Chief of Staff for the Secretary of the Interior Laura Davis Seeking Documents on the Investigation into the Bureau of Indian Affairs Regional Director


WASHINGTON, D.C., May 17, 2013 - Dear Ms. Davis:

In August 2012, the Office of the Inspector General ("OIG") for the U.S. Department of the Interior ("Department") issued a Report of lnvestigation ("Report") entitled "Jeanette Hanna et al." The Report outlines several concerns and allegations against fonner Bureau of Indian Affairs ("BIA") Regional Director Jeanette Hanna, who has been reassigned, initially on a temporary detail basis, to BIA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. The focus of the Report is on the waste of government funds surrounding Ms. Hanna's extended detail resulting in a loss to the taxpayer of at least $178,000; as well as other concerns including Ms. Hanna filing an EEO complaint that had no merit and Ms. Hanna being under review for ethical violations at the time of her reassignment and extended detail to Washington, D.C.
