Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Office of Government Ethics is soliciting input on a draft of a new strategic plan for 2018-2022 that among other things would stress holding federal agencies accountable for carrying out the ethics program.

“OGE will continue to evaluate agency ethics programs by conducting program reviews; analyzing annual data collected from agency about program administration; and reviewing requests to tailor agency ethics programs,” it says. On an individual basis, it adds, it will monitor compliance with ethics agreements and conflict of interest prohibitions.

Other OGE priorities include advancing a strong and uniform executive branch ethics program; assisting with the continuity of senior leadership during presidential transitions; and engaging the public in overseeing government integrity.
