A GSA OIG investigation determined that former GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth retaliated against a complainant for making protected disclosures.
A complainant disclosed concerns of violations of law, gross mismanagement, a gross waste of funds, and abuse of authority to former Administrator Roth, the former Deputy Administrator, the former General Counsel, and the OIG. The complainant alleged reprisal for making these disclosures.
An OIG investigation found that former Administrator Roth retaliated against the complainant by making statements and taking actions that threatened the complainant with transfer to another position. The investigation also found that former Administrator Roth retaliated against the complainant by significantly changing the complainant’s job responsibilities.
The OIG has completed its investigation and referred its findings to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.
