Lodge Complaint Against FHFA and US Treasury at the FHFA Office of Inspector General:
“The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 established an Office of Inspector General (OIG) within the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). The Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended, sets forth the functions and authorities of the FHFA OIG.
The FHFA OIG is established by law to provide independent and objective reporting to the FHFA Director, Congress, and the American people through its audit and investigative activities.
FHFA OIG’s mission is to promote the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of FHFA’s programs; to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse in FHFA’s programs; and to seek sanctions and prosecutions against those who are responsible for such fraud, waste, and abuse.
- Complainants and witnesses who are not Federal employees and are not employed by government contractors may anonymously communicate with the FHFA-OIG Hotline. Alternatively, they may request confidentiality, if they chose not to make an anonymous communication or are contacted by FHFA-OIG.
- Further, in addition to statutory confidentiality, whistleblower protection, and the ability to make anonymous complaints, various Federal laws and regulations (e.g., the Privacy Act of 1974 and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure) limit disclosure of information commonly in the possession of FHFA-OIG. Accordingly, FHFA-OIG will endeavor to maintain the confidentiality of all non-public information that it possesses.”
