With a multi-faceted methodology, the Contract Compliance Unit ensures that City contractors are not taking advantage of the system, and that the taxpayers of Philadelphia are always receiving an evenhanded bargain. We employ a comprehensive enforcement scheme that focuses on active education, detection, deterrence and prevention.
Enforcement begins with education, and the Contract Compliance Unit is continually evaluating the City’s process and requirements to assist relevant parties in identifying and reporting potential instances of fraud. Armed with the proper tools, City employees and contractors can better detect fraud and the OIG can initiate appropriate investigations. OIG Contract Compliance investigations, in turn, drive results that create clear deterrents for fraudulent actors. As each component of the enforcement system works together, fraud is prevented from the ground-up.
