Just two days before the Inspector General of the Department of Interior submitted three reports to Congress ripping the U.S. Minerals Management Service for ethical lapses and a pervasive culture of drug use and promiscuity, the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) was telling a different story.
A reader alerts us that on September 8, OGE announced that the Department of Interior was a proud winner of OGE's 2008 Education and Communication Awards:
U.S. Department of the Interior for developing a dynamic laminated Ethics Guide for employees. This polished, professional guide has colorful pictures and prints which demand employees’ attention. The guide features tabs on a variety of ethics topics and is small enough for employees to carry. The Department also conducted a four-day seminar for its ethics advisors from across the country.
