Evaluation of Alleged AUO Misuse at U.S. Customs and Border Protection's National Targeting Center (OSC File No. DI-14-0581) (Revised) [open pdf - 840KB]
From the Highlights: "The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) received a whistleblower disclosure concerning employees at U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) National Targeting Center-Cargo, in Herndon, Virginia and the National Targeting Center- Passenger, in Reston, Virginia. The whistleblower alleged that employees in both locations regularly claim administratively uncontrollable overtime (AUO), but fail to perform duties that qualify for AUO. OSC referred this allegation to DHS Acting Secretary Rand Beers. The Department subsequently requested our assistance with this allegation and several other AUO-related allegations from other DHS components. We assembled a taskforce of auditors, program analysts, investigators, and attorneys to review these allegations. This report contains the results of our evaluation on the alleged misuse of AUO at the National Targeting Centers in Herndon and Reston, Virginia."
