The Project on Government Oversight (POGO, for short) is based in Washington, D.C., and is an independent and nonpartisan watchdog group. Their investigations primarily deal with corruption, political misconduct, and conflicts of interest.
POGO’s goal is to move toward a more effective and accountable federal government.
In the past, the Project on Government Oversight has worked to help veterans and uncover the mismanagement and deception within the Department of Veterans Affairs.
POGO recently won the Dateline Award for investigative reporting for a project on the lenient security at U.S. embassies.
