Question Once I have filed a complaint with the Office of the State Inspector General, what happens?

Answer Your complaint will be reviewed to determine whether the issue is within our jurisdiction and whether there is a basis for investigation. If so, the Inspector General's Office will conduct an independent, fair and objective investigation, employing an accomplished professional staff made up of trained investigators, attorneys, and forensic auditors with extensive experience in combating corruption. If the evidence obtained during the course of our investigation substantiates your complaint, our findings will be referred to the appropriate agency for criminal prosecution, disciplinary action, ethics sanctions or other proceedings. In addition, investigations frequently result in recommendations to state agencies for reforms of policies, laws, systems and practices that will eliminate opportunities for corruption and improve the effectiveness of government operations.
