Mission of the OIG

The mission of the Broward Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is to act as an independent watchdog for the residents of Broward County. We promote integrity and accountability by investigating allegations of misconduct including fraud, corruption, and abuse and gross mismanagement, by officials and employees of the charter government of Broward County, its thirty-one municipalities, and all entities and persons who provide goods and services to the County and the municipalities. The OIG publicly reports its findings to keep residents informed. Whenever appropriate, the OIG seeks criminal prosecution, civil recoveries, administrative and monetary sanctions, and ethics sanctions of those responsible for fraud, waste and abuse in government.


Ethics Program

The OIG is charged with investigating and reporting misconduct by Broward’s county and municipal elected officials, public employees, and providers. We conduct disclosure compliance reviews, initiate ethics inquiries, follow up on tips and complaints, and commence investigations to determine if there is cause to believe that ethical misconduct has occurred.

Not all unethical conduct is within our jurisdiction: only conduct that would be a violation of law, charter, or ordinance or would be gross mismanagement is within our authority to review, investigate, report, refer, and prosecute.
