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.
Since 1991, The U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) has hosted traditional conferences for ethics officials from throughout the executive branch. This year, OGE is introducing an alternative to the traditional format, at a fraction of the cost of past OGE conferences.
