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 shall be mailed  or e-mailed to: Mark Masling, Chief, Professional Misconduct Review Unit, U.S. Department of Justice, Office of the Deputy Attorney General, 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Room 4131, Washington, DC 20530; E-mail: mark.masling2@usdoj.gov

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

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.
