Office of Inspector General

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Inspector General (OIG) is responsible for detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse in DOE programs. The OIG accomplishes this by conducting audits, inspections, and criminal investigations of DOE and its Contractors. A wide variety of issues are investigated including grant fraud, contract fraud, false claims, false statements, defective pricing, defective parts, product substitution, bribery, solicitation of bribes, kickbacks, environmental violations, conflicts of interest, theft of government property, health and safety matters, and computer access, intrusion, or other technology based violations.

If you suspect fraud, waste, and abuse you can contact the IG HOTLINE at (800) 541-1625 or (202) 586-4073. For reporting computer crimes directly to the OIG Technology Crimes Section, call (877) 827-7471. You are not required to identify yourself to hotline operators, and anonymous complaints are addressed just as vigorously as other complaints. If you contact the OIG and choose to provide your name, the OIG will protect your identity to the maximum extent possible by law. To visit the OIG Web site, click here:
