Online Reporting

When reporting waste, fraud, abuse, mismanagement or misconduct to the OIG, a complainant may request that his or her identity remain confidential (i.e., known only to the FLRA OIG), allow their name to be used (i.e., included in any investigation that may take place), or anonymous (i.e., unknown even to the FLRA OIG).  If the complainant chooses to remain anonymous, FLRA OIG cannot obtain additional information on the allegation (e.g., testimonial or documentary evidence; identity of witnesses), and also cannot inform the complainant as to what action FLRA OIG has taken on the complaint.  Confidential status allows further communication between the FLRA OIG and the complainant after the original complaint is received.  Please click below to file the complaint type of your choice.

The identity of complainants is protected under the provisions of the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 (PDF) and the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended (PDF).
