SEC Whistleblower Provisions
February 15, 2011
The comment letter suggests that the National Whistleblowers Center's data and methodology are questionable, encouraging a predetermination of SEC policy. Additionally, the CCMC states, "We believe that that the Commission’s rules should encourage whistleblowers to use a company’s internal compliance programs absent a well-founded reason for not doing so."
