The 17th Oversight Boot Camp

Two-Day Boot Camp: 
August 15-16, 2023

Twice per year, POGO, in conjunction with the Levin Center for Oversight and Democracy, and The Lugar Center, offer two-day, intensive training sessions for congressional staff on the art and practice of oversight and investigations. Each of these Oversight Boot Camps combines staff from the U.S. House and Senate, committees and personal offices, and the Democratic and Republican parties to produce a bipartisan, bicameral experience. To date, more than 300 congressional staff have completed this training on how to do fact-based, bipartisan, in-depth investigations.

Curious about what's involved and what you'll learn? Read the recap of our last oversight boot camp.

PLEASE NOTE: the application deadline is Wednesday, July 12. You will be contacted the following week regarding your acceptance status.

If accepted, you will need to confirm your attendance by Friday, July 21. Those who do not confirm by that date may have their slot offered to someone on the wait list.

We typically receive many more applications than we can accept. Preference will be given to applicants from committees, particularly if we have an applicant from the same committee of a different party.

The details to the boot camp will be provided upon confirmation of attendance.
