About our Confidential and Independent Hotline

The AOC OIG hotline is available to AOC employees, contractors and their employees, and members of the public who wish to report allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement within AOC programs and operations. Complaints may involve issues that occur at the AOC, on Capitol grounds, or those regarding AOC offsite employees. If requested, the OIG will protect the identity of those who file complaints unless disclosure is unavoidable. The OIG acknowledges receipt of all incoming complaints, unless they are submitted anonymously.

The OIG will review all incoming allegations and take appropriate action. We may decide to initiate an audit, evaluation, or investigation, or make a referral to the AOC or to an outside entity.
