Report Fraud, Waste, Abuse

Reporting Fraud, Waste, and Abuse within the Executive Branch

OIG's executive order limits our jurisdiction and charges our office to avoid duplication of investigative efforts; therefore, if another state or federal agency has specific jurisdiction to handle your allegations, we will likely refer your complaint to that agency. Examples of issues that we may refer are health program administration, social services, licensing, environmental issues, social security, housing issues, and other federal programs. In order to expedite the investigative process, determine the most appropriate agency to report your matter to by checking our page for other investigative agencies (Found Here)


When completing the OIG Complaint Form, please remember:

  • Incomplete details or lack of contact information may result in delayed response time or inaction
  • We only have jurisdiction to investigate allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and corruption within the Executive Branch of Georgia State Government.
  • We DO NOT have jurisdiction to investigate:
    • the Judicial Branch (lawyers, judges, and prosecutors);
    • the Legislature;
    • local government entities (example: police departments, school boards, county government offices);
    • whistleblower law violation complaints
