What happens when I report fraud to the Inspector General's Hotline?

If the Inspector General's staff determines that your complaint of fraud and abuse is worth further study, the complaint will be sent to appropriate agency for review and development. That agency will then decide how to proceed with the complaint. The complaint resolution process usually takes at least six months.  

Be aware that we cannot provide information regarding what action we have taken on any situation reported to us, nor are we allowed to share law enforcement records, even to the individual making the allegation.
