OIG Reports and Recommendations

After conducting an investigation, review or audit, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) may issue a letter or report detailing its findings and recommending reforms to prevent future problems.

After issuing a report, the OIG may maintain an oversight role to ensure that the agency or municipality carries out a suitable corrective action plan and takes any other measures called for in the report. The OIG also reports suspected criminal activity to the appropriate authorities, including the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The OIG may not issue a letter or report after every project since much of the OIG’s work is confidential.
