The State of Georgia Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is charged with fostering and promoting accountability and integrity in state government. Key to public trust is the expectation that the OIG will hold state officials accountable for efficient, cost effective government operations and to prevent, detect, identify, expose and eliminate fraud, waste, abuse and corruption. The OIG shall investigate complaints regarding management and operation of state agencies within the executive branch to determine if wrongful acts or omissions have been, or are being committed by state officers or employees. Reports of investigation shall be provided to the Governor and the department head of the agency/person under investigation. Reports will include recommendations for correcting and avoiding recurrence of circumstances uncovered by the investigation. When appropriate, reports of investigation will be forwarded for prosecutor review to determine if the underlying facts give rise to criminal prosecution.
