The GAO report states that 127 whistleblower retaliation complaints were submitted by contractor employees during the first two and a half years of the program. Of those, 44 were investigated by the involved agency’s Office of Inspector General (OIG). According to the GAO, “the complaints not investigated by the OIGs were excluded for a variety of reasons, such as the complaint was deemed to be frivolous or was being decided by another judicial authority.” Of the 44 where OIGs started investigations, 17 were ongoing when GAO finished gathering data for its report in mid-2016. None of the 27 completed investigations at the time resulted in findings that substantiated whistleblower reprisal against the employee.
