OIG Hotline

The purpose of the OIG hotline is to receive complaints of fraud, waste, or abuse in our client agencies' programs and operations, including mismanagement or violations of law, rules, or regulations by employees or program participants. OIG oversees the programs and operations of USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the United States African Development Foundation, the Inter-American Foundation, and upon request, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. Complaints may be received directly from employees, program participants, or the general public.

The Inspector General Act and other pertinent laws provide for the protection of persons making hotline complaints. You have the option of submitting your complaint(s) via telephone, U.S. mail, Internet, or electronic mail. OIG’s internal electronic systems meet all security standards required of Federal agencies. However, if you elect to submit your complaint(s) via Internet or e-mail, we cannot guarantee confidentiality because of the nonsecure nature of electronic systems that we do not control.

For telephone reporting, call 1-800-230-6539 or 202-712-1023. Complaints may be sent to ig.hotline@usaid.gov. Alternatively, you may complete the online complaint form at below, or submit the completed PDF form (complaint form pdf) by fax at (202) 216-3801 or by mail to the following address:
