Office of State Inspector General National Recognition

William L. Donaldson

Working with great people every day to make a difference in the state

When a state deputy inspector general receives an academic honor, all employees and citizens benefit from the high level of skill that award represents.

Recently, William L. Donaldson, Deputy Inspector General for Georgia, was recognized by the Inspector General Criminal Investigator Academy for earning the highest score in his class on the Academy’s  national exam and for superior performance in its training program. 

In his fourth year with the Inspector General’s office, Bill Donaldson conducts investigations involving fraud, waste, abuse and corruption within the executive branch of state government.  Donaldson is a Certified Public Accountant and a Certified Fraud Examiner with years of experience in fraud investigations ranging from financial statement fraud to employee embezzlement. 

For Donaldson, the training has a side benefit:  “I had the opportunity to build relationships with other field office personnel at the local and federal levels.”  

It is just another part of public service.  “I wake up in the morning and want to come to work.  The job is fun, working with great people every day to make a difference in the state,” said Donaldson.

In recognizing the significance of the award, Governor Nathan Deal said, “The safety and liberties we are blessed to enjoy are due to devoted public servants and law enforcement personnel like you.  I believe we are stronger because of your dedicated efforts.”
