An administrative investigation found that a Medical Center Senior Official failed to ensure that information about a possible criminal matter involving a felony was promptly referred to the Office of Inspector General (OIG), Office of Investigations. In addition, the Senior Official interfered with the OIG investigation when he asked a subordinate to provide him key information about events that he reasonably knew OIG would ask him about during his interview, and he did not testify freely and honestly in connection with the OIG investigation.
