Office of the Inspector General
Who We Are

In 1997, the County Council for Montgomery County passed legislation to create the Inspector General’s Office to serve as a watchdog to detect and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in County government operations.

The specific goals, authority, and duties of the Office are found in Montgomery County Code, §2-151.

What We Do

Although appointed by the County Council, the Inspector General is solely responsible for choosing topics for review after carefully considering available resources and the mission of the Office.

Our Mission

In carrying out the mission, the Inspector General team produces a number of confidential and public documents. Public documents include the Inspector General Work Plan, results of audits and investigations, and periodic status reports to the County Council. Many of these documents are available for Web viewing in HTML format, or for viewing and printing in PDF format.

Our Advisory Group

The Inspector General has established an Advisory Group to assist the OIG in developing annual plans for executing and reporting on audits and investigations; determining position and skill needs of the office; and assessing its budgetary needs.

The members of the OIG Advisory Group operate under a charter that sets the qualifications for membership and anticipated activities of the members.
