In response to
the public’s demand for clean government, the Miami-Dade County
Board of County Commissioners created the Office of the Inspector
General (OIG). The OIG is authorized to detect, investigate and
prevent fraud, waste, mismanagement and abuse of power in county
projects, programs or contracts.
The County Commissioners
took great lengths to insure that the Inspector General can carry
out these goals while autonomous, independent and insulated from
political influences. It is one of a few OIGs in the country that
has jurisdiction to investigate officials at any level, including
elected officials. By Agreement, the OIG provides similar services to the Miami-Dade Public Schools District.
Our goal is
to prevent misconduct and abuse, expose it publicly, and seek appropriate
remedies to recover public monies. Above all, the OIG’s principal
objective is to promote ethics, honesty and efficiency in government
and to restore and promote the public’s trust in government.
