NSA OIG HOTLINE
The critical importance of blowing the whistle was not lost on the nation’s Founding Fathers.
In 1778, the Continental Congress passed the country’s first whistleblower legislation, declaring it was “the duty of all persons in the service of the United States” to report misconduct or fraud. More than two centuries later, the U.S. Senate officially recognized July 30 as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day – and the issues still warrant attention.
Individuals with information about what they reasonably believe to be wrongdoing perform an essential service to the National Security Agency when they come forward to report their concerns. Your voice is important to NSA OIG, and we want to hear from you.
NSA OIG maintains a Hotline to facilitate the reporting of allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement in NSA programs and operations, as well as violations of law, rules, and regulations by NSA employees, contractors, and assigned military.
The NSA OIG Hotline is staffed by OIG Hotline managers, who review complaints and determine the appropriate courses of action. Credible complaints may be assigned to an OIG investigator, or referred (with the consent of the complainant if the person is an Agency employee) to appropriate NSA organizations that can provide information and assistance to the person who lodged the complaint.
