Anyone with information regarding waste, fraud, and abuse in the Los Angeles Unified School District should report it immediately using the OIG Fraud Hotline.


Reporting Fraud, Waste, and Abuse


The OIG operates a Hotline so anyone can easily report allegations of fraud, waste and abuse occurring within the District. The OIG receives thousands of reports from concerned employees, vendors, and the public, most of which are either investigated by the OIG or referred to local district administrators for investigation and disposition.


Complaints regarding personnel matters and/or management are typically not investigated by the OIG unless there is evidence of wrongdoing. To ensure that your report is given adequate attention, you must provide reliable, accurate, and detailed information.


Prior to submitting a report, make sure you have the correct spelling of names, employee and vendor numbers (if available), position and program titles, work location, funding source, and any other pertinent detail. This will ensure that your report is handled quickly. Choose one of the following methods to report fraud, waste, and abuse:


1.    Complete the online Fraud Reporting Form for the Office of the Inspector General.

2.    Call the OIG Fraud Hotline (213-241-7778 or toll-free 866-528-7364) to speak to an Investigator or leave a message.


3.    Complete and Print the Fraud Reporting Form and submit it to the Office of the Inspector General via mail, fax or email.
