Justice Department to Flesh Out Whistleblower Program After 90-Day ‘Policy Sprint’ – WSJ

“When it comes to the pilot, there are only so many details I can share at this point—and that’s because the whole point of the [Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco’s] 90-day ‘policy sprint’ is to gather information, to consult with stakeholders and to design a thoughtful, well-informed program,” said Nicole Argentieri, acting U.S. assistant attorney general for the criminal division, at the American Bar Association conference on Friday.

Argentieri said one goal of the new program is to help the Justice Department uncover companies’ involvement in foreign bribery plots when those schemes wouldn’t fall under the Securities and Exchange Commission’s jurisdiction. The SEC operates its own tips program, but unlike the Justice Department, it can only bring cases against publicly traded companies.
