Founded in 1981 in partnership with whistleblowers, the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) is a nonpartisan independent watchdog that works to expose waste, corruption, abuse of power, and when the government fails to serve the public or silences those who report wrongdoing. We champion reforms to achieve a more effective, ethical, and accountable federal government that safeguards constitutional principles. POGO has an annual budget of more than $6 million, which supports a staff of over 45 employees.

The Associate Editor helps make sure that POGO’s written products—including its investigations, reports, and analyses—advance POGO’s mission to uncover systemic problems in the federal government and promote solutions in a nonpartisan manner. The Associate Editor reports directly to POGO’s Supervising Editor.
