Welcome from the Inspector General

Thank you for visiting the website of the Office of Inspector General (OIG). Our purpose (why we exist) is to provide independent and objective insight, oversight, and foresight in promoting efficiency, effectiveness, and integrity in government. Our promise (what we do) is to accomplish this through conducting audits, investigations, and contract oversight activities. Our values (how we behave) of Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, and Excellence reflect our PRIDE in serving the citizens of Palm Beach County.

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.

John A. Carey
