Welcome from the Inspector General

Thank you for visiting the official website of the Office of Inspector General (OIG). The OIG promotes efficiency and effectiveness in the administration and operations within governments and entities under OIG jurisdiction. Further, we detect, deter, and prevent - fraud, waste, mismanagement and misconduct. We do this through conducting audits, investigations and contract oversight.

By vote of the citizens, our jurisdiction includes the County Government and each of the 38 municipalities. Other public entities that have voluntarily entered into contracts for our oversight include the Children’s Services Council and the Solid Waste Authority.

It is an honor to serve as the IG of Palm Beach County. I am committed to championing openness, integrity, and continuous improvement in government.
