Does management really want me to report concerns?
We certainly do. In fact, you are required to report observed or suspected ethics or compliance violations. You may have knowledge of an activity that could put the firm or our clients at risk. Your reporting can minimize the potential negative impact on the firm, our clients and your fellow employees.

I am concerned that if I file a Report or participate in an investigation, I will be retaliated against. What will the firm do to protect me from any type of retaliatory action?
Booz Allen does not tolerate retaliation against any employee who in good faith raises a question or concern or reports suspected misconduct related to the firm’s business or the conduct of any of its directors, officers, employees, clients, suppliers, or subcontractors. Our commitment to non-retaliation is a cornerstone of our Ethics Program. It assures you that in posing any question, raising any concern, or reporting misconduct, you will not suffer any negative consequences for doing so—period. Anyone who violates the firm’s Mandatory Reporting and Non-Retaliation Policy is subject to disciplinary consequences, up to or including termination of employment.
