Dear Dr. Anderson, Thank you for your letter of March 3, 2014, transmitted by Dr. Frankel. You raise very significant concerns regarding the scope of 5 U.S.C. Section 1213(g)(1) and the role of the U.S. Office of Special Counsel OSC), and clarification as to whether Section 1213(g)(1) may apply to any “individual,” even one with no relationship to federal employment. As you note, OSC has taken the view that a (g) referral may only be made if the disclosure is made by a former or present federal employee, or an applicant for federal employment. You express concern that “narrowing the range of sources” who may bring complaints could preclude scientific and technical experts from reporting wrongdoing regarding “the quality and integrity of scientific information and data.” As it happens, we are currently reviewing OSC’s policy as to this provision. I will be pleased to report back to you soon. Again, we very much appreciate your interest and input in this matter. Sincerely, Mark Cohen Principal Deputy Special Counsel U.S. Office of Special Counsel
