DHS’ Use of Non-disclosure Agreements that Potentially Limit Protected Disclosure of Information

Project Objective

Determine whether DHS and component nondisclosure agreements, including those used in employee settlement agreements, include statutory Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2012 and Department-mandated language allowing for protected disclosures to the OIG or other permissible recipients, and whether such nondisclosure agreements pose any other bar to the OIG's access to information.
