GAO Publishes CFATS Whistleblower Report

This week, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report titled Improvements Needed for DHS’s Chemical Facility Whistleblower Report Process. The report examines (1) the number and types of CFATS whistleblower reports DHS received from June 2015 through April 2016, and any actions DHS took as a result; and (2) the extent to which DHS has implemented and followed a process to address the whistleblower reports, including reports of retaliation against whistleblowers.
