On August 28, 2012, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) asked Department of Energy (DOE) Inspector General (IG) Gregory H. Friedman to investigate whether DOE employees are purposefully using private email accounts for official business in order to shield the contents from the public and avoid having these messages captured by the department’s record keeping system.
A recent Washington Post article, based in part on documents obtained by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, detailed how DOE employees — including Jonathan Silver, the former head of DOE’s clean-energy loan program — used non-government email addresses to discuss the program and other official business. Such conduct violates the Federal Records Act (FRA).
