What can OIG investigate?

OIG has jurisdiction over state agencies in the executive branch of state government as well as some boards and commissions as defined in Title 36 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes. OIG jurisdiction may extend to some vendors and contractors who conduct business with a covered state agency, as well as some programs that are funded with grants issued by a covered state agency.


What can’t OIG investigate?

OIG does not have jurisdiction over private businesses, private individuals, or local officials including mayors, city councils, district attorneys, courts, judges, city police departments, or parish sheriff’s offices. If your complaint involves an issue where OIG does not have jurisdiction, you may want to visit our Helpful Links page for suggestions on other agencies that may be able to assist you.
