Demske, chief of the inspector general. “The CIA OIG, like Jazz and Lundbeck, aims to reduce future risks to patients and taxpayer-funded programs. OIG decided not to ask for a CIA with Alexion because after the bad behavior, it made significant and fundamental organizational changes. Changes included the recruitment of a new eight-member management team and the modification of half of the board members.
