Effects of Pandemic on Workforce and Operations: Litigation Component Surveys
The OIG is conducting two surveys to better understand the effects of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the workforce, coordination efforts, and cases. One survey is of U.S. Attorneys Offices, the Executive Office of the U.S. Attorneys, Civil Division, Civil Rights Division, Criminal Division, National Security Division, Antitrust Division, Tax Division, and Environmental and Natural Resources Division. The second survey is specific to the Executive Office for Immigration Review because the OIG recognizes the distinct differences in EOIR's mission and responsibilities.
