OSIG-Specific COVID-19 Updates

We have received many questions regarding the operations of the Office of State Inspector General (OSIG) during the current COVID-19-related shutdown of Pennsylvania state offices. The most important thing to know is that OSIG remains committed to its mission to ensure integrity, accountability and public confidence in Pennsylvania government by preventing, investigating and eliminating fraud, waste, abuse and misconduct in all agencies under the Governor's jurisdiction.

To keep you updated during COVID-19, the OSIG has developed a list of resources that we hope you will find useful. We will add to this list as more resources become available.

All Pennsylvania residents are encouraged to sign up for AlertPA, a text notification system for health, weather, and other important alerts like COVID-19 updates from commonwealth agencies.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)


Due to OSIG's comprehensive distribution of mobile technology to staff, over 90% of our workforce are teleworking at full capacity. All investigators and agents are actively pursuing leads, ensuring the integrity of state government operations and public assistance programs. We are actively processing all tips received. If you see government or public assistance fraud, waste, abuse, or misconduct, please report it. We are still serving Pennsylvania residents, and we will continue to do so.

Right-to-Know Law Requests

While many OSIG employees are teleworking, all OSIG offices are closed. As such, all days during which OSIG's offices are closed will not be considered business days for the purposes of Right to Know Law Requests. For more information, visit our Right-to-Know Law page.
