The Details of Report waste and abuse

What you need for Report waste and abuse

The Office of State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump seeks to make government work better for the residents of the Commonwealth. Our office is generally required to audit every state agency every three years, and these audits must adhere to Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS). Audits not only identify where a government program or contractor is not meeting its responsibilities but also provide recommendations to help them work better. We use sophisticated data analytics tools, public tips, and other information to identify the areas where our insights can most effectively help agencies better serve their constituents.

Do you know of an area where state government could work better? We want to hear from you if you have seen situations in which:

  • Government property or funds are being lost, stolen, or misused;
  • State agencies are not effectively serving their constituents; or
  • State organizations or contractors are not meeting their responsibilities.

All tips submitted will be reviewed by our auditors, who may use them in a future audit.

Keep in mind, the Office of the State Auditor is a public agency and is subject to the state's public records law. The information you submit to our office is a public record.

Also, please note, in order to maintain the integrity of our audits, we are unable to provide updates on ongoing or potential activities that result from tips we receive.
