Headquarters 1730 M Street, NW Washington, D.C.
Staff 122
Interests whistleblowers
Officially, in charge of ensuring whistleblowers are taken seriously.

The United States Office of Special Counsel was set up to receive whistleblowing disclosures from federal employees. It has the power to demand investigation of charges made by whistleblowers, but very rarely does so - the OSC's annual report for fiscal year 1995 reveals that out of 333 whistleblowing disclosures, the office forwarded only 2 for agency investigation.[1][2]
