Right to Further Review


What can I do if I am not satisfied with OARM’s final determination?

Either party may request, within 30 calendar days of a final determination or corrective action order by the Director of OARM, review by the Deputy Attorney General of that determination or order. Any requests for review should be addressed to: John Geise, Chief, United States Department of Justice, Office of the Deputy Attorney General, Professional Misconduct Review Unit, 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Room 4131, Washington, DC 20530-0001.


Do the parties have the right to an interlocutory appeal to the Deputy Attorney General?

No. The applicable FBI whistleblower laws do not expressly provide for a right to an interlocutory appeal to the Deputy Attorney General. The parties have the right to appeal only the Director of OARM's final determination on the merits of a complainant's request for corrective action and/or any corrective action order resulting therefrom.
