Presentation about the Fraud Hotline

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) set up the Fraud Hotline to receive reports of fraud, waste or abuse in GSA programs, including mismanagement or violations of law, rules or regulations by GSA employees or contractors.

Confidentiality

If you do not wish to disclose your identity, you may remain anonymous when contacting the OIG. However, our inability to contact you may limit our ability to do a complete investigation. We also honor requests for confidentiality, and we will protect your identity to the maximum extent allowed by law. Similarly, however, we may not be able to investigate the issue if you have confidentiality.

Please call the Hotline for detailed information about the special procedures used for protecting the identities of confidential sources. See also our Privacy Statement and note the privacy disclaimer below if you use a FraudNet Form or e-mail message to report allegations.

Privacy Disclaimer: Please be advised that any information submitted across the Internet is not guaranteed to be confidential because of the inherent openness of the Internet. Use of the Fraud Hotline Form will avoid disclosure of your e-mail address to the Fraud Hotline officer. Exercise discretion in sending sensitive material via e-mail because it can be intercepted by an outside party.
