Oversight Matters Podcast
Oversight Matters is a close-up look at important oversight and investigations by both state legislatures and Congress and the people behind them. You will hear personal stories and learn how legislators and their staff uncover waste, fraud, and abuse in government programs as well as the facts behind important public policy reforms. Listen in!
We host regular events both virtually and in-person on important oversight and public policy topics of the day. We bring together lawmakers, scholars, policy experts, activists, community organizers, journalists, and attorneys to discuss issues such as oversight of disaster responses, criminal justice reforms, oversight of government contracts, or how oversight can be conducted in the digital marketplace. Join us!
Congressional & State Testimony
We are privileged to be called upon by Congress and state legislatures across the country to testify in committee hearings or provide written testimonies and expert opinions. Most testimonies are available to watch in full or you can download our submitted remarks.
Every year, we award two prizes to scholars and lawmakers who have distinguished themselves through their oversight work. Our research award recognizes an outstanding oversight paper, while our Carl Levin Award honors a bipartisan team of lawmakers for their oversight efforts.
