The Decree Enforcement and Compliance Unit was established in August 2020. For civil settlements, the office has primary responsibility for enforcing judgments and oversight regarding the selection and supervision of monitors. For criminal matters, the office works with the criminal sections on the evaluation and promotion of effective compliance programs and provides counsel to the Assistant Attorney General in the review of monitor recommendations.
The office liaises closely with Division attorneys, monitors, and compliance officers to ensure the effective implementation of, and compliance with, judgments and compliance programs designed to deter future antitrust violations. Additionally, the office is the Division’s primary contact for whistleblowers or complainants who have information regarding potential violations of civil judgments. Any such concerns should be reported to ODEC@usdoj.gov.
