New OIG Hotline Site
INDUSTRY NEWS TAGS: OIG
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) recognizes the importance of public vigilance in combating fraud, waste, and abuse. The OIG Hotline provides an outlet for the general public to report allegations of wrongdoing in Department programs. To facilitate the reporting process, OIG has updated the Hotline page on its website. In addition to providing some general guidance on the types of complaints most commonly received, the new page includes an online complaint form that prompts users to provide relevant and complete information. This new system should result in a more expeditious referral of tips to the field for potential investigations, audits, and/or monetary recoveries. Members of the public will still be able to submit tips by phone or mail, should they prefer.
