Program Review Reports: 1999
A review of an agency's ethics program by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) is a vital means by which OGE can assess the ability of an ethics program to engender faith and confidence in the work of an agency. The authority for conducting ethics program reviews is found in Title IV of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, as amended (Ethics Act) and the implementing regulations at 5 C.F.R. Part 2638. Under Title IV (5 U.S.C. app.), the OGE Director is to monitor and investigate individual and agency compliance with the public and confidential financial disclosure requirements (§ 402(b)(3) and (5)). Under Part 2638, OGE is to:
- monitor compliance with the public and confidential financial disclosure requirements (§ 2638.102(a)(4)), and
- evaluate the effectiveness of programs designed to prevent conflicts of interest (§ 2638.102(a)(6)).
Program review reports issued since January 2011 are posted. In addition, program review reports prior to 2011 are posted if released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
