Division of Financial Investigations
The Division of Financial Investigations addresses public corruption, fraud, waste, and abuse issues at public entities such as state agencies, counties, school districts, universities, community colleges, and special taxing districts. Specifically, the Division investigates allegations involving theft, misuse of public monies, forgery, fraudulent schemes, money laundering, computer tampering, and conflict of interest and provides reports on these investigations to law enforcement agencies for prosecutorial consideration. Financial investigations also identify actions public officials can take to improve control over public monies and help deter and detect fraud. Additionally, the Division proactively addresses fraud risks by working collaboratively with other Auditor General divisions during their reviews and audits of various public entities. Finally, the Division provides training to public entities and professional associations regarding fraud detection and deterrence.
