The Palm Beach County (PBC) Office of Inspector General (OIG) recently launched a new Hotline number, (877) OIG-TIPS. The OIG accepts tips and complaints from all sources about potential fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement in local government .
Who can report to the OIG? Anyone, any time
Anonymous Complaints: We accept anonymous complaints! For those wishing to remain anonymous, it is important that you provide sufficient information/evidence that would warrant OIG action.
Confidentiality of complainant’s name and information: Should you provide your name via our Hotline, email (email@example.com), or our website (https://www.pbcgov.org/oig), such information is confidential and exempt from disclosure until our investigation is closed.
Whistleblower protection: Whistleblower status may be granted to those who report suspected acts of gross mismanagement, malfeasance, misfeasance, gross waste of public funds, or gross neglect of duty committed by an employee or agent of an agency or independent contractor. If you are granted whistleblower status, your name and identity will remain confidential.
Integrity and accountability in government is everyone’s business. If you suspect fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement in local government, call (877) OIG-TIPS.
