In late August 2011, the U.S. Office of Government Ethics will unveil a new and improved website, at www.oge.gov. The new site is designed to provide a more friendly user experience for all user groups, including ethics practitioners, executive branch employees, and members of the general public. The site will offer more intuitive navigation, and robust research tools will allow content to be searched by topic, date, and legal citation. You can preview the site by clicking here.
Note: As a result of the redesign, links to the current site (www.usoge.gov) will no longer work once the new site goes live.
Remember, covered employees are required to receive annual ethics training before the end of the calendar year.
July 15 – Reminder: Unless further information is required, agencies' annual Public Financial Disclosure reports should be certified by today, (5 CFR § 2634.605)
July 29 – DUE TO OGE TODAY: The Public Financial Disclosure reports of PAS, DAEO, and other persons whose Public Financial Disclosure reports are required to be forwarded to OGE for review and certification are due today unless an extension has been granted.
