The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) employs about 1,700 professional staff members who are deployed throughout the Nation in regional and field offices and in Washington, DC, headquarters. We conduct audits, evaluations, and investigations; provide guidance to industry; and, when appropriate, impose sanctions such as civil monetary penalties (CMP) and exclude individuals and entities from participation in Federal health care programs. We collaborate with HHS and its operating and staff divisions, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and other executive branch agencies, Congress, and States to bring about systemic changes, successful prosecutions, negotiated settlements, and recovery of funds. Following are descriptions of our mission-based components.
