Oversight Boot Camps
At least twice per year, the Levin Center at Wayne Law, Project On Government Oversight (POGO) and The Lugar Center offer two-day, intensive training sessions for congressional staff on how to conduct oversight investigations. Each of these "Oversight Boot Camps" combines staff from the U.S. House and Senate, committees and personal offices, and the Democratic and Republican parties to produce a bipartisan, bicameral experience. To date, 250 congressional staff have undergone boot camp instruction on how to do fact-based, bipartisan, in-depth investigations.
Whether you're interested in attending a boot camp or are already a boot camp graduate, we hope this information will be of interest.
Oversight Boot Camps are made possible with the generous support of the Democracy Fund, a bipartisan foundation established to ensure that the U.S. political system can withstand new challenges and deliver on its promise to the American people.
