The Government Purchasing Project encourages government employees to investigate agency compliance with EPP (environmentally preferable purchasing) laws or policies. We can provide technical assistance to government agencies at all levels in order to achieve full compliance with EPP policies. Please contact us at

Federal employees and others with documented cases of corrupt, incompetent, or otherwise harmful government practices in the area of procurement can also contact Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) at or the National Whistleblower Center at

The Government Purchasing Project is a project of the Center for Responsive Law.
