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 shall be emailed to email@example.com.
Procedures of the Office of the Deputy Attorney General, as related to FBI whistleblower reprisal appeals, can be found via the link: Office of the Deputy Attorney General's Procedures for FBI Whistleblower Reprisal Appeals Brought Pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 27.5
There is also a right to appeal a final determination or corrective action order to the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board under 5 U.S.C. § 2303(d)(1).
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.
