Learn about the OIG

The Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General promotes good government. The OIG is committed to collaboration at all levels of government to achieve this mission for the Commonwealth.

The OIG conducts investigations at all levels of government; reviews programs and practices to identify system-wide vulnerabilities and opportunities for improvement; and assists the public and private sectors to help prevent fraud, waste and abuse in government spending.

In addition, the OIG provides guidance to local government officials on the purchase and disposition of supplies, services, equipment and real property. The OIG also educates public and private employees through its Massachusetts Certified Public Purchasing Official (MCPPO) training program.
