Office of the Inspector General

Rooting out corruption, fraud, and misconduct and increasing public confidence in City government.

Office of the Inspector General

What we do

The Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) goal is to keep City government free from all forms of misconduct. We conduct both criminal and administrative investigations of all departments, agencies, commissions, and boards under the Mayor’s jurisdiction, as well as individuals or companies that do business with the City or receive City funding.

The OIG has the power to:

  • Issue subpoenas.
  • Examine all City documents, contracts, and monetary expenditures made from the City treasury.
  • Demand testimony from City employees.

The office works with federal, state, and local law enforcement when reviewing issues related to criminal activity and serious cases of fraud and corruption. Our work also relies on the support of fellow Philadelphians who report allegations of wrongdoing in City government.
