As the Inspector General for City government, DOI roots out fraud, waste and corruption wherever it may be.
Pursuant to Mayoral Executive Order 16, Ctiy employees must report allegations of corruption to DOI. This ensures that the charges will be probed confidentially and professionally by investigators independent of the employee's own agency and superiors.
The City's Whistleblower Law protects City employees, including employees of City entities headed by elected officials such as Borough Presidents, the City Comptroller and members of the City Council, from retaliation for reporting misconduct, corruption, criminal activity, conflicts of interest, gross mismanagement and abuse of authority.
Reports of fraud, waste or corruption can also be made by:
