OIG Hotline

The Office of the Inspector General for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board established the Hotline program to provide agency employees, other government employees, licensees/utility employees, contractors, and the public with a way to report questionable activity to the OIG concerning potential fraud, waste, abuse, and employee or management misconduct.  You may also report mismanagement of agency programs or danger to public health and safety through the Hotline program.  You may contact the OIG Hotline program by telephone, through the online form below, or by mail.

You may make an allegation anonymously, or request that your identity be kept confidential.  If you choose to identify yourself, consistent with the terms of the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended, we will not reveal your identity unless disclosure is unavoidable.  Please be aware, while you may submit complaints anonymously, providing your name, address, and phone number allows us to follow up with you and address your matter more expeditiously.

Unless the report is knowingly false, no action may be taken against you for having complained or disclosed information to the OIG. Reprisal and retaliation for reporting wrongdoing is prohibited by federal law and regulations.
