About POGO

Work at POGO

Founded in 1981, POGO is an independent nonprofit that investigates and exposes corruption and other misconduct in order to achieve a more  effective, accountable, open, and ethical federal government. POGO is a multi-issue organization with an expertise in working with inside sources and whistleblowers to expose evidence of waste, fraud, or abuse in the federal government.  In recent years, POGO's investigations and outreach programs have addressed shortcomings in national security, the lack of oversight of government spending, outmoded nuclear weapons programs, inadequate whistleblower protections, excessive government secrecy, and Congress' inability to conduct effective government oversight. POGO's investigations have also been responsible for billions in saved tax dollars and for major policy reforms affecting millions of Americans.

POGO provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or genetics. We welcome all interested and qualified individuals to apply.
