Report Fraud

 
The OSIG receives thousands of complaints each year regarding fraud, waste and abuse in government agencies/programs and welfare fraud.  Individuals, including public employees, are encouraged to contact the OSIG with information regarding fraud, waste and abuse within state government and welfare fraud. If something looks wrong to you, you should report it to the OSIG. 

 
The OSIG carefully reviews each and every complaint that it receives and conducts thorough investigations into complaints when appropriate. The OSIG cannot provide complainants with status updates on or results of investigations.

 
It is the OSIG's practice to maintain the name of complainants in confidence. You may provide information anonymously.

 
Complaints can be filed online using the links below. Your web browser must be in Compatibility Mode for the Fraud Complaint Form to function. Refer to your browser’s Help file on how to turn on Compatibility Mode.
