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.

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.
