POGO grew out of the offices of the National Taxpayers Union and was originally named the Project on Military Procurement. We were adopted by the Fund for Constitutional Government and moved into a tiny office above a Chinese restaurant, where Pentagon whistleblowers dropped off documents in unmarked envelopes. The Project made its mark by looking into Pentagon fraud and waste, spotlighting overspending on overpriced toilet seats, coffee makers, and other spare parts. This led Herb Block, editorial cartoonist for The Washington Post , to perpetually depict then-Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger with a toilet seat draped around his neck. Sixteen years ago, we expanded our mission to examine all federal agencies, becoming the Project On Government Oversight. Today, our office is larger but still modest. We hear from nearly a hundred government sources and whistleblowers monthly, and still get the occasional unmarked envelope slipped under the door. POGO’s range of investigations has come to include homeland security concerns; government subservience to commercial interests; mismanagement and abuse in government contracting; excessive secrecy; and mismanagement of natural resources by federal agencies. Throughout our years of working toward a more honest and accountable government, one thing has remained the same – if we dig in the right place, a government official usually shows up at our door trying to intimidate us! We have been fortunate over the years to prevail in efforts to thwart our investigations or reveal our sources. There have been numerous attempts to silence our criticisms including endeavors to hold us in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over our home and office phone records, and an attempt to confiscate our office files. Integrity in the federal government is under assault today more than it has ever been since POGO was founded. Corruption in government is undermining the public’s confidence in the democratic process. So, while we celebrate our accomplishments, we see that POGO’s mission to make the government more honest, open, and accountable must not only continue but must also meet the unknown challenges the future will bring. Danielle Brian Executive Director POGO sheds light on the unholy alliance that exists between government agencies and contractors. At times, it seems there “ is no one out there fighting for good government – except POGO. ABOUT POGO Senior Federal Procurement Official 4 ” Founded in 1981 ,he Project On Government Oversight (POGO) is an independent nonprofit that investigates and exposes corruption and other misconduct in order to achieve a more accountable federal government. From the beginning, POGO (which was then known as Project on Military Procurement) has worked to expose outrageously overpriced military spending such as the $7,600 coffee maker and the $436 hammer. In 1990, after many successes reforming the military, POGO expanded its mandate to investigate systemic waste, fraud, and abuse in all federal agencies. While some organizations develop grassroots movements to place pressure on Members of Congress, and other organizations focus their funds and energy on hiring lobbyists to work the government system from the inside, POGO is unique in its approach. POGO conducts in-depth investigations into public policies in dire need of reform, develops recommendations based on those investigations, and then advocates for the implementation of the recommendations or solutions. POGO uses investigative journalism techniques to shed light on the government’s activities, including working with whistleblowers and anonymous sources, and accessing information through the Freedom of Information Act. 1981 1981 1982 1983 1983 Project on Military The Project exposes fThe first of several Dina Rasor publishes Congress forms the Procurement founded operational test failappearances by Dina RMore Bucks, Less Bang, atagon Operational Test by Dina Rasor to expof the M-1 tank and on thehil Donahue collection of investigativealuation Office after waste, fraud, and abchallenges the effectShow exposing the articles illustrating theProject advocates the in the defense budgeincluding Air Force Aoverpriced spare partbureaucracy.the weaponsed for such an office. and terrain-guided cruise missiles. In today's Washington, the pressures on honest government workers to remain silent in the face of waste, fraud and abuse are intense. These insiders “ need more than a profound commitment to the public interest when they speak up – they need POGO. Representative Ed Markey (D-MA) ” 5 Government and corporate whistleblowers and insiders bring POGO many of its important investigative topics. POGO informs the public of its findings, in large part through reports that contain extensive documentation and recommendations for how to solve the problems that are identified. Once a report has been released, many more insiders usually approach POGO to provide further documentation and information. By gathering information and building relationships with whistleblowers and government insiders, as well as by collaborating with other nonprofit organizations, POGO is able to get to the root of the issues in question. We can then provide realistic recommen- dations for solving age-old problems that have plagued the government and the services it is responsible for providing. POGO is often asked to testify at congressional hearings and to provide POGO- ground information and questions to Members of Congress, government Methodology agency representatives from the executive branch, the Government Accountability Office, several Inspectors General.

BEYOND THE HEADLINES AND BI-PARTISAN AWARDS EVENT 2005 On November 17, POGO presented the Beyond the Headlines and Bi-Partisan Leadership Awards. 8 The Beyond the Headlines Award was created to recognize a person who has tenaciously pursued efforts to create a more accountable and responsive federal government. This person is one whose work went beyond reaching for the headlines, and whose cause is consistent with POGO’s mission. The award is presented each year to someone who is devoted to advancing public interest over private gain, and who has initiated substantial public policy improvements. Past recipients include: Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) Robert Martin, EPA National Ombudsman Bill Hedden, Utah Conservation Director, Grand Canyon Trust Philip E. Coyle, III, former Director, Pentagon Operational Test and Evaluation Office Scott Armstrong, Investigative Journalist and Executive Director of Information Trust Gloria Flora, former Supervisor, U.S. Forest Service Anthony Rizzo, Jr., Security Officer, Salem & Hope Creek Nuclear Power Plants The 2005 Beyond the Headlines Award was presented to Mr. Russ Kick, who has used his Memory Hole website and blog – maintained primarily out of his own pocket – to catalog and disperse “material that is in danger of being lost, is hard to find, or is not widely known.” The site is most recognized for posting photographs gained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) of previously undisclosed flag-draped coffins returning from Iraq.

Spinney retired Staff Analyst for the Office of the Secret”ry of Defense 9 The Bi-Partisan Leadership Award was created to recognize more open, honest, and accountable government. This is the first year that POGO has a presented this award. Senators John Cornyn(R-TX) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) are the first recipients of our newly- forces to increase government transparency and strengthen FOIA. In their most recent effort, Senators Leahy and Cornyn sponsored the OPEN Government Act of 2005 (S. 394), as well as other open government bills, which prevents burying exemptions to FOIA in legislation. measures to fortify FOIA. While serving as Texas Attorney General, he led an open-government initiative. Senator Leahy has consistently supported measures to strengthen has worked on other measures to beef up FOIA and has garnered bi-partisan support for corporate whistleblower protection. If you feel something’s wrong, speak your mind. POGO helped me to prove that you don’t have to be rich or politically “ connected to have your voice heard – if you try hard enough it can be done.

POGO'S OUTREACH AND IMPACT 10 By conducting comprehensive research and advocating solutions from a nonpartisan position, POGO has gained a reputation for making substantive recom- mendations for policy reform. POGO’s research and investigative products are regularly used by the news media, Members of Congress and their staff, nonprofits, and government agencies. MEDIA POGO generates or is quoted in an estimated 3,000 media stories per year. During 2005, POGO worked regularly with major television, print, and radio news outlets including cable and broadcast network news channels, national newspapers, news magazines, trade publications, and national radio outlets. POGO particularly works closely with investigative reporters on longer in-depth news stories by helping them to gain access to documents and experts to inform their coverage. CONGRESS POGO enjoys good working relationships with Republican and Democratic Members of Congress, and often accomplishes its policy reform goals with their help. In each of the past two years, approximately five congressional hearings have been called as a result of POGO’s research, and many Members of Congress use POGO-generated information. POGO is also invited to testify or speak at an average of ten additional congressional hearings and events every year. 2000 2000 2000 2001 2001 Rep.

I commend the Project On Government Oversight for its strong commitment to accountability and integrity in government. Their work has always “ been highly professional, insightful and accessible. Representative Christopher Shays (R-CT) ” 11 GOVERNMENT AGENCIES POGO regularly informs and works with investigators and staff members at agencies such as the Government Accountability Office, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Department of Energy, Office of the Secretary of Defense, and Defense Department’s Office of Test and Evaluation (which provides independent analysis of testing for weapons and systems). POGO also works with the White House; Congressional Research Service; and Cost Accounting Standards Board, which monitors $125 billion in primarily defense industry contracts annually. THE PUBLIC POGO’s web site has become an important tool to reach the public directly. Currently, the POGO web site (www.pogo.org) receives over one million hits and 30,000 unique visitors each month. Beginning in 2004, POGO launched a POGO Blog and an Action Center as part of the web site. The journal format of the Blog allows POGO to engage in dialogue with the public, the media, and experts on the various issues POGO investigates. It also allows POGO to highlight information that does not necessarily warrant a press release or formal report, but should still be made public in a timely fashion. The Action Center encourages and facilitates the public’s ability to write to their Members of Congress and editors of their own local newspapers. 2001 2002 2002 2002 2002 Nuclear weapons POGO is instrumental iPublic Employees for U.S. News and World New York State begins complex security officcutting major weapons ronmental ResponsibilReport cover story using POGO’s Federal report that security tsystems with hefty priGovernment Accountabifeatures POGO’s investi-tractor Misconduct result of POGO’s investo the military: the $The Art of Anonymousbcivil misconduct by thendors. to identify risky gation. billion Comanche helicActivism: Serving theU.S. government’s largest the $11 billion CrusadWhile Surviving Publicontractors. and 1/3 of the B-1 bomService how-to guide for fleet. government whistleblowers.
