Robert Mitchell

Short Narrative/Description:

This is a summary of over two dozen studies conducted on the global auditing profession.

Speaker Background:

In July 2013, Robert Mitchell was named the Director, Strategic Planning, for the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General (OIG). He reports to the Deputy Inspector General. Immediately prior to becoming the Director, Strategic Planning, Mr. Mitchell was the OIG’s Deputy Director, Audit Operations.

Mr. Mitchell came to the U.S. Postal Service OIG as an audit director in May 2005. His work focused primarily on Postal Service revenue protection and revenue generation. His audit reports have identified cost reductions totaling $870 million, and opportunities for the Postal Service to generate several billions of dollars in new revenues. Several of his reports, due to the sensitive nature of the issues identified, could not be published.

Mr. Mitchell’s 30-year auditing career began as a staff auditor with Arthur Andersen, and includes four years as an instructor at Morehouse College, seven years with the Defense Contract Audit Agency, two years as a contracting expert with the Environmental Protection Agency, and 11 years with the Environmental Protection Agency Office of Inspector General.

Mr. Mitchell earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting from Morehouse College and an MBA from Ohio State University.

A native of Buffalo, New York, he and his wife have one son.
