ABSTRACT

Office of Special Counsel: Actions Needed to Improve Processing of Prohibited Personnel Practice and Whistleblower Disclosure Cases, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 2MB]

"OSC (Office of Special Counsel) is responsible for safeguarding the merit system in federal employment by protecting employees and applicants, including whistleblowers. Consequently, OSC must ensure its case processes are adequate to protect the federal workforce, including its own employees. GAO (Government Accountability Office) was asked to review OSC case processes and procedures for whistleblower disclosures and PPPs (prohibited personnel practice). For both types of cases, this report among other things (1) examines trends in cases received and closed from fiscal year 2011 to 2016, (2) examines timeliness of cases closed from fiscal year 2011 to 2016, and (3) assesses the extent to which safeguards are in place for OSC employees who make allegations."
