What to watch for as DOJ whistleblower program sprint ends

Whistle question

The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) 90-day sprint to developing and implementing a pilot whistleblower rewards program ended Wednesday, and many questions remain about what the program will entail.

Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco first announced the program during a speech on March 7, emphasizing the need for the DOJ to “fill gaps” left by other government agency programs relevant to the range of corporate and financial misconduct the DOJ prosecutes.

Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole Argentieri of the DOJ’s Criminal Division followed a day later with more details, including that the agency hoped to use the program to increase its pipeline of cases involving apparent violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, among other matters.
