In a May 8 letter to the White House and Congress, Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner said, “The FAA has the highest rate of whistleblower filings per employee of any federal branch agency.” Half of those reports received by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) relate to aviation.

OSC received 178 whistleblower disclosures from FAA employees since FY 2007, 89 of which related to aviation safety,” said Lerner. OSC’s mission is to provide a secure channel to protect federal whistleblowers from agency retaliation.
