Glenn Fine, former principal deputy inspector general at the Department of Defense (DoD), is slated to depart from the DoD Office of the IG (OIG) on June 1, Politico reported Tuesday.
Fine, who joined the Pentagon OIG in 2015, announced his intent to resign this week in an email to employees. Previously, Fine was selected to head a panel created to manage the Trump administration's COVID-19 relief efforts, according to the report.
Prior to his most recent role, Fine served as IG at the Department of Justice (DOJ) from 2000 to 2011. He also served as special counsel at the DOJ OIG and spent time as Assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C. He was a partner at Dechert LLP before joining DOJ OIG.
Fine's resignation comes after President Trump announced plans to nominate Jason Abend, a senior policy adviser at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), as permanent DoD IG last month.
