Other Hotlines


A number of agencies operate fraud hotlines specific to their operations and programs they administer. Although the Office of Legislative Audits welcomes all referrals of allegations of fraud or abuse in State government, allegations related to certain types of fraud may also be referred directly to the responsible agency’s fraud hotline.
