Inspector General information
  Report fraud, waste and abuse  
  The mission of the Hotline for the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) is to facilitate the reporting of fraud, waste, abuse, mismanagement, and reprisal in all programs associated with Iraq reconstruction efforts funded by the American taxpayer. Cases received by the SIGIR Hotline that are not related to the Iraq Relief and Reconstruction Fund (IRRF) or to programs and operations of the former Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) are transferred to the appropriate entity. The SIGIR Hotline receives walk-in, telephone, mail, fax, and online complaints from people in Iraq, the United States, and throughout the world.

The SIGIR Hotline office serves as a clearing house for complaints. It maintains an audit trail of all complaints received and the complaint file records until they are sent to the SIGIR Records Management Office. When a Hotline complaint is received, the Hotline Analyst will evaluate the complaint to determine if the complaint is within SIGIR's purview to investigate. This evaluation includes a screening to eliminate unacceptable complaints and to determine if the complaint involves IRRF funds, or involves programs or operations of the former CPA. If the source of funding identified in the complaint is not apparent or identified, a check of the SIRIS database will be conducted. If this check meets with negative results, the SIGIR Hotline Analyst will complete a thorough inquiry with contracting Points of Contact in Iraq provided to our office by the Investigations, Audits, and Administrative offices in Baghdad.

Upon determination that the funding source is IRRF or involves programs or operations of the former CPA, the complaint is forwarded to SIGIR Investigations or Audits, depending on the subject matter of the complaint. The Assistant Inspector General for Audits or the Assistant Inspector General for Investigations will determine if a case should be opened. If the complaint is not appropriate for SIGIR review, the complaint will be transferred to the appropriate Inspector General agency that has oversight.
