The good-government nonprofit Project on Government Oversight (POGO) is asking for anonymous tips from feds (and the public), to help to quickly identify and rectify ongoing problems in the coronavirus response.
In the longer run, too, the tips should help leaders identify and correct past pitfalls in planning that led to current problems in managing the pandemic.
“If you are aware of an action (or lack of action) taken by the federal government that is making you or your community less safe,” POGO says, offering the online anonymous reporting form, “we want to hear about it.”
One box on the form seems especially ready-made if you are one of the hundreds of thousands of feds involved in managing the crisis—if you see a problem and think it should be made public and placed in sight of Congress, just click on: “I am involved in the response and have a tip you should investigate.”
