EDOUARD R. QUATREVAUX, New Orleans Inspector General
Mr. Quatrevaux is a native New Orleanian who earned a B.A. in Economics from the University of New Orleans in 1969, and an MBA from Tulane University in 1975.
He served as an Army officer from 1967-1987, retiring with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He was twice a company commander in Vietnam, and his other assignments included Chief of Seaport Operations in Europe, and Logistics Force Structure Analyst on the Army General Staff. He led a landmark study that re-designed the Army’s transportation units, doubling the productivity of those units and reducing manpower requirements by 60,000. His final Army assignment was as Inspector General of the Defense Department’s joint service transportation agency. There he evaluated domestic and international shipping, and made recommendations with the potential for $10 billion in annual savings.
From 1991 through 2000, he was the Inspector General of the Legal Services Corporation, a federal entity which makes grants for legal aid to poor people. He led an evaluation of the use of information technology in the delivery of legal services, which greatly expanded the number of people served with little increase in cost.
Mr. Quatrevaux then founded a company that purchased an accredited college and converted it to an online, distance education format. He sold his interest in 2004.
He retired to Mandeville and now resides in Orleans parish. He has served as the New Orleans Inspector General since September of 2009.
