2023 Annual Report

25th Year Anniversary

In 2022, the Miami-Dade County Inspector General celebrated 25 years of service. Read the Inspector General's message about this important milestone.

Home Rule Charter Amendment Approved

On November 3, 2020, the voters of Miami-Dade County approved the Home Rule Charter Amendment to establish an independent Office of the Inspector General (OIG). By a favorable margin of 78.40 percent (753,902 “Yes” votes to 268,848 “No” votes) the OIG is now officially established in the Home Rule Charter.

Created by ordinance, before the Charter Amendment was adopted, the OIG could have been abolished by a 2/3 vote of the entire County Commission. By inserting the OIG into the Home Rule Charter, any effort to abolish the OIG will now be subject to a referendum question being submitted to the voters. By approving this Charter Amendment, the voters have given this watchdog agency greater independence to perform its mission. We are grateful for the support.

Ensuring Honesty and Efficiency

Autonomous and independent, the Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was created by the Board of County Commissioners to serve as a watchdog over County practices. Through three distinct yet overlapping functions – audits, investigations and legal/contract oversight – the OIG investigates fraud, waste and abuse, rendering findings based on facts and evidence.
