Report Fraud, Noncompliance or AbuseSubmit allegation form
The Department of Legislative Audit (DLA) has authority to audit any state officer, department, agency, board or commission and any political subdivision if the Auditor General deems it necessary and in the public interest. DLA will accept allegations of fraud, noncompliance or abuse involving any of these organizations; their elected or appointed officials; management or employees. DLA will assess the nature of the allegations and determine whether it is in the public interest to conduct an audit or investigation related to the allegations.
The DLA will consider allegations using the following definitions of fraud, noncompliance and abuse:
- Fraud involves a deliberate action by an individual to acquire something they are not entitled to by use of deception.
- Noncompliance involves matters where an individual or government entity has not complied with a state or federal law, rule, regulation or policy that governs the use of public money or other resources.
- Abuse involves behavior that is deficient or improper when compared with behavior that a prudent person would consider reasonable and necessary business practice given the facts and circumstances.
