Here’s the intro from this “White Collar Briefly” blog penned by Colin Ceriello (see the blog for a series of “Key Highlights” from the speech):

“During a keynote speech on March 7th at the American Bar Association’s National Institute on White Collar Crime, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco announced that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will launch a pilot program offering financial incentives for individual whistleblowers to report corporate wrongdoing to the DOJ.

According to DAG Monaco, the pilot program intends to use “carrots to wield larger sticks” on a full range of corporate misconduct and reinforces the DOJ’s commitment to implementing policies aimed at promoting cultures of corporate compliance. While DAG Monaco’s announcement invoked past images of law enforcement incentivizing reporters with “Wanted” posters, the anticipated pilot program will have significant ramifications on the future of companies’ existing internal compliance reporting channels.”
