The Office of Inspector General (OIG) Hotline is a clearinghouse for receiving and handling allegations regarding fraud, waste, abuse, mismanagement, or misconduct affecting Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) programs and operations. Examples of allegations that should be reported to the OIG Hotline include misuse, embezzlement, or theft of government property or funds; contract or procurement fraud; contractor misconduct; employee misconduct, such as misuse of official position; bribes or unauthorized acceptance of gifts; conflicts of interest and other ethical violations; and defense trade control violations.

To process your allegation(s), we will need you to provide as much information as possible regarding the suspect and victim. Your information should include the following:

  • Who committed the wrongdoing (person, company, or organization)?
  • What exactly did the individual or entity do?
  • Where did the activity take place?
  • When did it happen?
  • How was the activity committed?
  • Do you know why the person committed the wrongdoing?
  • Who else has knowledge of the potential wrongdoing?

Without sufficient information we may be unable to act on your allegation. The more information you can provide, the better the chance we have of determining whether any wrongdoing has been committed. We are very interested in the information you have regarding waste, fraud, abuse, mismanagement, or misconduct in EEOC programs.
