Individuals who contact the Hotline are not required to provide identifying information. Persons who report allegations are encouraged to identify themselves in the event additional questions arise as the OIG evaluates or pursues the allegations. The identities of persons reporting allegations through the OIG Hotline will not be disclosed without their consent unless disclosure is unavoidable. Nevertheless, providing identifying information is optional when using our OIG-LSC Hotline Form.

The Inspector General (IG) Act and other pertinent laws protect persons making Hotline complaints. To review the IG Act of 1978, as amended, visit  Inspector General Act of 1978.
