Customized Staff Briefings
In addition to regular training seminars open to all congressional staff, the Initiative offers customized trainings tailored to the needs of an individual office.
Perhaps you need basic oversight briefing for new staff, a primer on the functions and history of an agency, or a brush-up on interview techniques. Drawing on the expertise of a broad network of accomplished investigative and oversight veterans, the Initiative can help brief your staff on the information they need to conduct the oversight your Member, and the American people, deserve. POGO is also able to host virtual briefings when circumstances require it.

Federal Staff Trainings
POGO offers oversight trainings, on request, to small groups within the executive branch of the federal government. These trainings mainly cover the topics of whistleblower rights and legal protections, as well as best practices for safely disclosing instances of waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government. The trainings are conducted by POGO Executive Director Danielle Brian and CDI Director Mandy Smithberger. To inquire, please email us at [email protected].
