GPS is steered by the Air Force last time I checked.
A really good place to check is the NIST Time and Frequency pages that show both real time and historical data for each GPS sat compared to NIST time:
Hopefully it’s accessible via that link from a variety of locations.
Since the NIST data is independent of the steering (two different outfits involved) it should not be vulnerable to a “our ground segment broke and we steered everything to match” sort of error.
