Ensuring Honesty and Efficiency

Autonomous and independent, the Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was created by the Board of County Commissioners to serve as a watchdog over County practices. Through three distinct yet overlapping functions – audits, investigations and legal/contract oversight – the OIG investigates fraud, waste and abuse, rendering findings based in facts and evidence.
