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: email@example.com.

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.
