OI investigates potential crimes and civil violations of law involving VA programs and operations committed by VA employees, contractors, beneficiaries, and other individuals. These investigations focus on a wide range of matters including healthcare, procurement, benefits, construction, and other fraud; cybercrime and identity theft; bribery and embezzlement; drug offenses; and violent crimes. OI is staffed by special agents with full law enforcement authority, forensic auditors, and other professionals. Staff use data analytics, cyber-tools, covert operations, and other strategies to detect and address conduct that poses a threat to or has harmed veterans or other beneficiaries and VA personnel, operations, and property. Through criminal prosecutions and civil monetary recoveries, the OIG’s investigations promote integrity, patient safety, efficiency, and accountability within VA.
OIG’s administrative investigations are conducted by the Office of Special Reviews.
