I was just informed that diversity training existed before the OEI was formed. It was discontinued for a short while, but it did exist a few years back.

I also understand that the OEI outsources almost all of their work.

  • The Hotline: outsourced
  • Ethics Culture Survey: outsourced
  • Online compliance-based ethics training: outsourced
  • Sunroad investigation: partially outsourced to two firms

Check out this organization chart. Can anyone tell me why three executive secretaries are necessary? If almost everything in that office is being outsourced, they should be able to manage with just one.

Outsourcing makes sense when it leads to organizational efficiencies, but in the case of the OEI, it appears taxpayers are still on the hook for a bloated bureaucracy.

If I’m missing a big piece of the puzzle, please enlighten me.
