OIG: Organizational Structure

The OIG is comprised of four divisions – the Audits Division, the Investigations Division, the Inspections and Evaluations Division, and the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

Select the division title to view relevant documents.

The Audits Division audits District organizations, programs, functions, and activities. Audits provide management with an independent appraisal of whether desired results and objectives are achieved efficiently, economically, and in accordance with prescribed laws, regulations, policies, and procedures. The Division performs financial, performance and attestation audits.

The Investigations Division investigates allegations of misconduct by DC government employees, contractors, and financial assistance recipients, which may involve violations of DC or federal criminal law, civil statutes, DC regulations, or employee standards of conduct. Investigations Division reports may include findings and recommendations regarding program weaknesses, contracting irregularities, and other institutional problems that are discovered as a result of complaints or investigations initiated by the OIG.

The Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU), which was certified by the US Department of Health and Human Services on March 1, 2000, works to detect, investigate, and prosecute  fraud and abuse in the administration of the Medicaid program and recovers millions of dollars lost due to fraud.  The MFCU also investigates allegations of abuse, neglect, and theft involving persons who reside in Medicaid-funded facilities or who receive Medicaid-covered services.  Those who engage in fraud and abuse within the Medicaid program are subject to administrative action, civil penalties, and/or criminal prosecution.

The Inspections and Evaluations (I&E) Division conducts inspections that provide decision makers with objective, thorough, and timely evaluations of DC government agencies and programs. I&E reports contain findings and recommendations that can help District officials achieve efficiency, effectiveness, economy, and safety in managing day-to-day operations and personnel. I&E goals are to: help ensure compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies; identify accountability; recognize excellence; and promote continuous improvement in the delivery of services to DC residents, workers, and visitors.
