A Message from Inspector General Mary T. Cagle

WELCOME to the official Internet site of the Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General (OIG). This site includes many of our published investigative and audit reports, information about our office, and our annual reports. Note the "REPORT FRAUD" button to report complaints confidentially. This site also links to other government agencies that may be of service to you. This site provides you with information about our staff, what we do, our history, and the jurisdiction of the Inspector General.

Your Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners took great lengths to ensure that the Inspector General is autonomous and independent—insulated from any political influences. To help restore public trust in County government, in 1997 the Board of County Commissioners created the OIG to be a watchdog over County practices. The Board of County Commissioners designed the ordinance to ensure that the OIG would be sufficiently funded and independent, so the goal of creating a watchdog could be achieved. The OIG has the authority to investigate fraud, waste, and abuse within your County's programs and projects, to randomly audit County contracts and programs, and to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of such programs.

In February of 2014, after being appointed by the Ad Hoc Selection Panel and approved by the Board of County Commissioners, I had the pleasure of assuming the role of Inspector General—only the second Inspector General in the history of the County. Thanks to former Inspector General Chris Mazzella, I take the helm of an agency that is accredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation and designated as a criminal justice agency by the FBI.

It is my honor and privilege to serve Miami-Dade County as the Inspector General, and I am committed to using my experience and expertise to lead the OIG staff; working with the Commission, Mayor, staff, and the public to carry out the mission of the Office.

My door is open and there is much work to do. We have two distinct yet overlapping functions: audit/contract oversight and investigation. The expertise of the staff is impressive. We will investigate and audit with a sense of purpose, consistent with our statutory mission. We will be thorough and fair, and our findings and recommendations will be based on facts and evidence.

At the end of the day, we all want to live and work in this wonderful community, trusting that our government is honest and efficient and working for the greater good. Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
