Pursuant to the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2012 (WPEA), the EXIM Bank Office of Inspector General has designated a Whistleblower Protection Ombudsman to educate EXIM Bank employees about prohibitions on retaliation for protected disclosures, as well as the rights and remedies against retaliation for protected disclosures for those who have made or are contemplating making a protected disclosure.

Employees can contact the Whistleblower Protection Ombudsman:

Legal Counsel to the Inspector General
811 Vermont Avenue, N.W.
Room 138
Washington, DC 20571
(202) 565-3908

Please note that the Whistleblower Protection Ombudsman is not permitted to act as a legal representative, agent, or advocate for employees or former employees.

EXIM Bank employees may also file complaints or get more information about WPEA through the U.S. Office of Special Counsel. Under WPEA, the Office of Special Counsel has sole authority to investigate and prosecute complaints of reprisal against whistleblowing employees (as well as other prohibited personnel practices).
