Gabriele A. Tonsil
Assistant Inspector General for Audits and Inspections

Gabriele A. Tonsil is the Assistant Inspector General for Audits and Inspections at the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. She leads the agency’s multidisciplinary team of auditors, program analysts, and engineers deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan, and those located at SIGAR’s headquarters in Arlington, Va. Ms. Tonsil is responsible for ensuring the production of high-quality and timely audit and inspection reports and other products that comply with government auditing and inspection standards, support Congress in its oversight of U.S.-funded Afghan reconstruction programs, and provide actionable recommendations to the agencies implementing those programs.

Ms. Tonsil previously served as the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for Audits and Inspections in Crystal City. She joined SIGAR in late January 2010 and completed a two-year tour in the Kabul office from April 2010 to April 2012. During her time with SIGAR, she has led and overseen the planning, execution, and ultimately reporting of multiple audits examining a variety of reconstruction issues, such as literacy training for Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) personnel and the operation and maintenance of ANSF facilities; U.S. direct assistance to the Afghan government; and efforts to support Afghan women. The audits identified several deficiencies in program efficiency and effectiveness, and recommendations to correct them, as well as successes in the reconstruction effort.

Prior to SIGAR, Ms. Tonsil worked as an Analyst with U.S. Government Accountability Office. Her work primarily focused on security-related issues, such as counter-piracy efforts, combat skills training, and freight rail security.

Ms. Tonsil has a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in biology from Dartmouth College, and a master's degree in statistics from the University of Georgia.
