OIG Hotline Forms

Anyone with knowledge of fraud, waste, abuse, misconduct, or mismanagement involving the U.S. Department of the Interior should contact the Office of Inspector General's hotline. Please choose the appropriate button below to submit a hotline complaint.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Please be advised that as of March 16, 2020, the OIG is unable to review complaints received by physical mail or fax until further notice. We are still accepting complaints through our web hotline form and by phone.

I need more information

Before I file a complaint, I would like some additional information on the process, what to expect, my rights, or other resources.

Submit a general complaint

I am providing my name and I agree that DOI OIG can disclose my name and other information I provide, if necessary, to ensure my issues are addressed.

Submit a confidential complaint

I wish to be confidential, meaning I am providing the OIG my name, but I request that the OIG not disclose my name outside the OIG. This option is appropriate for complainants who fear reprisal.

Submit an anonymous complaint

I wish to be anonymous, meaning the OIG will not know my name. If I make this selection, I understand that the OIG will not be able to contact me, and the OIG may not have enough information to pursue my concerns.

Submit a whistleblower retaliation complaint

I believe I have been retaliated against for making a protected disclosure. I understand I can not file an allegation of Whistleblower Retaliation Confidentially or Anonymously, as it may be necessary for the OIG to coordinate with my agency concerning the allegations.
