The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) is committed to educating executive branch ethics officials and federal employees on the conflicts of interest statutes and ethics regulations. OGE’s team of professional staff and attorneys are continuously developing new courses and online training modules. In addition to the courses, OGE develops job aids, brochures, quick reference guides and posters that ethics officials can use and in some cases customize to meet the daily needs and demands of the employees they serve.
The Office of Government Ethics offers several resources to answer Federal employees’ questions on ethics rules and novel issues. Federal employees can use this information to supplement annual ethics training or to educate themselves on novel issues. This material is not meant to replace the advice and counsel that agency ethics officials are trained to provide.
The U.S. Office of Government Ethics has a very robust education and training program. OGE educates agency ethics officials on the ethics laws and regulations and assists them in meeting the needs of their own ethics programs. OGE fulfils this mission through many forms of written and visual media including job aids, brochures, pamphlets, and instructor led and web based training.
Through the Program Excellence and Innovation Awards, OGE recognizes executive branch agencies that demonstrate ethics program success.
OGE has been hosting a conference for ethics officials from throughout the Executive Branch since 1991. The conference serves to inform ethics officials about the application of ethics-related laws and regulations and provides participants with an opportunity to discuss ethics issues common to the Executive Branch.
