Whistleblowing Works: How Inspectors General Respond to and Protect Whistleblowers

Issued July 30, 2019
To illustrate the importance of individuals coming forward to report waste, fraud, abuse, and misconduct to Offices of Inspector General (OIG), we used the search function on Oversight.gov and identified many examples of OIG investigations, audits, and reviews initiated or advanced because of a whistleblower disclosure. We present a sample of these reports and also summarize OIG efforts to protect whistleblowers from unlawful retaliation. Our whistleblower resources page on Oversight.gov provides more information on where to report of waste, fraud, abuse, or retaliation.
