Actually the Labor Department OIG has been without an confirmed IG for a year longer than POGO's database indicates. Labor IG Gordon Heddell was detailed to serve as acting IG at the Defense Department in July 2008, and his deputy was named Acting IG at Labor soon afterwards because of Congressional criticism that the Defense Department needed a fulltime IG. In fairness to the current administration a nominee to be Labor IG was available from @ July 2010 to the end of April 2011, but he withdrew his name due to Senate opposition. A new nomination has yet to be made.
