Abstract

This paper shows how the SEC Whistleblower Program’s FY 2022 Annual Report to Congress (released in November 2022) is the least transparent report in agency history, omitting six categories of statistical information about the Program’s operations that the SEC had previously disclosed in every single prior Annual Report since the earliest days of the program.

Keywords: Whistleblowers, Bounties, SEC, Dodd-Frank, Transparency
