Government Accountability Project
The Government Accountability Project (GAP) was created in 1977 in response to White House scandals. Our mission is to ensure government and corporate accountability by advancing occupational free speech, defending whistleblowers and empowering citizen activists. During this time, GAP has served as a lifeline to employees of conscience and has helped them release critical information that serves the public interest and the common good. Now in our 34th year, GAP has advanced to become not only the nation’s leading whistleblower support organization, but also an important government and corporate accountability organization both domestically and internationally. GAP’s change-oriented methodology includes representing whistleblowers, creating an effective advocacy agenda surrounding their concerns, and developing, then implementing, broad whistleblower protection policy reforms with extraordinary reach in the United States and abroad. GAP’s programs include: Environment and Energy Oversight; Food Integrity; Public Health and Safety; Corporate and Financial Accountability; National Security and Human Rights; and International Reform.
