Founded in 1981 in partnership with whistleblowers, the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) is a nonpartisan independent watchdog that works to expose waste, corruption, abuse of power, and when the government fails to serve the public or silences those who report wrongdoing. We champion reforms to achieve a more effective, ethical, and accountable federal government that safeguards constitutional principles. POGO has an annual budget of more than $6 million, which supports a staff of over 40 employees.
POGO’s Congressional Oversight Initiative (COI) works to enhance Congress's ability to conduct effective oversight and investigations, with a focus on bipartisanship and adherence to best practices. COI currently provides congressional training programs, boots camps, master classes, and an oversight summit on a variety of oversight topics in coordination with partner organizations, and creates, maintains, and distributes resources that support congressional oversight and investigations including an Oversight Handbook and a twice weekly newsletter (called the Paper Trail).
POGO’s COI team is looking for a talented Director to oversee the planning, execution, assessment, refinement, and growth of all of COI’s projects and programs. The Director of COI reports directly to POGO’s Executive Editorial Director.
