I have not been able to confirm this yet, but I hear through sources in the Beltway that multiple new criminal investigations have been launched into DSS management’s mode of operation.  Anyone know anything about this?  GFS

Update from a reader on 10-7-10:

“Some computers of DSS HQ senior management were seized by the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS), so there may be a criminal case under investigation.

On another front, an investigation is being conducted by either DoD or DSS IG regarding timekeeping; not compensating staff for overtime work.  They are examining timesheets and other documents regarding duty hours; staff’s compressed work schedules.   They may be visiting every DSS office and interviewing everyone.”

This seems like a good time to remind everyone in DoD and in particular DSS,  to be even more conscientious than usual about not using work computers for personal emails or websurfing.  The individuals who have been committing these violations against federal employees are most likely becoming quite desperate as the pressure is building and the lights are beginning to be shined onto them wherever they are hiding.    GFS
