DOJ eyeing more FCPA cases with whistleblower program


The Department of Justice (DOJ) anticipates its upcoming whistleblower reward program will help the agency increase its pipeline of cases involving apparent violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

The program, announced Thursday by Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco, will see the DOJ look to compensate individuals who come forward with information of corporate misconduct under certain circumstances. It is expected to take form later this year following a 90-day sprint to a pilot program.

While specifics on the program will remain scant until the agency begins the work, Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole Argentieri shared more details in remarks delivered Friday at an American Bar Association event.
