Edition 4: Administration and Finance - Part 1
Spotlight: Inspector General
Who better to prevent or detect fraud, waste, and misuse than a retired FBI agent? As Inspector General, Kevin Eaton reports directly to the Chairman of the Florida Citrus Commission and FDOC Executive Director providing independent audits, investigations, and management reviews of FDOC programs, contracts, and policies. His work not only promotes efficient use of FDOC dollars but helps develop performance measurements and assess potential risks.

A graduate of Marshall University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, Eaton served with the FBI for 26 years, most recently as Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Tampa Field Office.
