The African American Federal Executive Association (AAFEA)  announced this week that Larry L. Johnson graduated from the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) Fellows Program.

“I was humbled to be accepted into the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) Fellows Cohort #5,” Johnson wrote on LinkedIn, adding that he was “thankful to work with amazing leaders in the phenomenal program.” Johnson also offered “special thanks to the leadership team at SSA OIG.”

In October 2022, the AAFEA congratulated Johnson on his selection as a 2022-23 CIGIE Fellow. As a special agent in charge at the Social Security Administration (SSA) Office of Inspector General (OIG), Johnson was among twenty-five individuals selected for the executive leadership development program.

The AAFEA is a non-profit dedicated to preparing and supporting African Americans for advancement into and within the senior ranks of the U.S. government.

The CIGIE Fellows Program is highly competitive, with only twenty nominees being selected for the Fellows Program across all government agencies in any given year.

According to the CIGIE website, the entity was established within the executive branch to address integrity, economy, and effectiveness that transcend individual government agencies and aid in the establishment of a professional, well-trained, and highly skilled workforce in more than 70 offices of inspectors generals across the federal government.

OIGs are located within their agencies but conduct their audits, investigations, evaluations, and special reviews independently from their agencies. Approximately half of the 74 federal IGs are appointed by the White House subject to Senate confirmation, and about half are set by the agency head.

In addition to his role as special agent in charge at the Social Security Administration, Johnson serves as co-chair of the Diversity, equity, inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Council and is an active recruiter at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) for the agency
that administers the social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivor benefits

Johnson is also a longtime member of African American fraternities and social organizations that provide a network of leaders at institutions in the United States.

Last year, the American Heart Association (AHA) recognized Johnson as a top fundraiser in the Eastern states during the Leaders for Life campaign in Baltimore, Maryland.
