Report Fraud, Waste, or Abuse – Contact the Fraud Hotline                       240 777 7644


Who We Are:


In 1997, the County Council for Montgomery County passed legislation to create the Inspector General’s Office to serve as a watchdog to detect and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in County government operations.

The specific goals, authority, and duties of the Office are found in Montgomery County Code, §2-151.


What We Do:


Although appointed by the County Council, the Inspector General is solely responsible for choosing topics for review after carefully considering available resources and the mission of the Office.

The mission is stated in three goals set forth in the enabling legislation.


Our Mission:



  • Prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse in government activities 
  • Propose ways to increase the legal, fiscal, and ethical accountability of County government departments and County-funded agencies 
  • Review efficiency and effectiveness of programs and operation of County government and independent County-funded agencies

In carrying out the mission, the Inspector General team produces a number of confidential and public documents.  Public documents include the Inspector General Work Plan, results of audits and investigations, and periodic status reports to the County Council.  Many of these documents are available for Web viewing in HTML format, or for viewing and printing in PDF format.


Our Advisory Group:

The Inspector General has established an Advisory Group to assist the OIG in developing annual plans for executing and reporting on audits and investigations; determining position and skill needs of the office; and assessing its budgetary needs.

The members of the OIG Advisory Group operate under a charter that sets the qualifications for membership and anticipated activities of the members.
