Report Fraud, Noncompliance or Abuse

Report Fraud, Noncompliance or Abuse

Submit 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:
If your allegation involves violations of open meeting laws, please visit the Open Meeting Commission area of the Attorney General's website for information on how to file a complaint.

If your allegation involves Medicaid fraud, please use the complaint form at the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit website.

Anonymous Reporting

You may submit an allegation to DLA anonymously, but we may be better able to address your allegation if you provide your name and contact information so that we can follow-up with you if necessary. State law (SDCL 4-11-21) allows the Auditor General to keep the identity of a person supplying information confidential if requested by the person and such confidentiality is determined to be appropriate by the Auditor General. It is also helpful to us if you are able to provide specific details regarding your allegation including names of individuals or organizations involved, dates and any documents you may have supporting the allegation. DLA will not address matters that only involve disagreements you may have with the conduct or policies of an individual or government entity.

You may submit an allegation to DLA by contacting us in any of the following ways:
