United Press International

William Barton, former deputy director of the Secret Service, was named inspector general of the General Services Administration in a move intended to help the GSA fight fraud and waste.

In announcing its choice of Barton on Friday, the GSA also said that it was reassigning to Philadelphia William Clinkscales, who in the late 1970s and 1980 helped to prosecute 130 agency employees in a scandal involving kickbacks, phony contracts and payment for work never performed.

Clinkscales, former associate administrator of the Office of Policy Management, was named deputy regional administrator of the GSA regional office in Philadelphia.
