FY 2018-19 Proposed Budget and Multi-Year Capital Plan
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) serves the residents of Miami-Dade County by identifying fraud, mismanagement, waste, and abuse of power in County projects, programs, and contracts. The Office was created by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) in response to the public’s demand for more accountable government. The BCC determined that oversight of such a large and diverse government required the OIG to be independent and autonomous, so that it could carry out its goals without political interference.
As part of the General Government strategic area, the OIG routinely reviews and evaluates proposals, contracts, and programs for a range of management criteria. The OIG also investigates a variety of cases, including contractors doing business with and/or receiving funds from the County and cases of employee and official misconduct.
The OIG’s jurisdiction encompasses all County departments, agencies, instrumentalities, and the programs thereunder. This jurisdiction extends to all County employees, public officials, elected officials, and vendors and contractors doing business with the County. The OIG has been designated a criminal justice agency by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is accredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation based upon statewide standards for Offices of Inspectors General.
It takes integrity and courage to report fraud. Our county employees and vendors who report fraud to the OIG are incredibly important to good government. At the Inspector General’s Office we are committed to ensuring that you can report fraud confidentially and receive information, if appropriate, regarding what happened to your complaint. In FY 2018-2019 we will be tracking our performance to ensure that individuals who make complaints to our office receive timely feedback.
