Mission

The Office of the State Inspector General (OIG) is responsible for detecting, investigating, deterring and eliminating corruption, fraud, criminal activity, conflicts of interest, abuses and waste in the State entities under its jurisdiction. OIG's authority also extends to all contractors and vendors conducting business with the State.

Organization and Staffing

The head of OIG is the State Inspector General who is appointed by the Governor and remains in office until the end of the appointing Governor's term. The Office is headquartered in Albany and has offices in New York City and Buffalo.

Budget Highlights

The FY 2019 Executive Budget recommends $7.4 million All Funds ($6.9 million in General Fund, $200,000 in Federal and $300,000 in Other Funds). This is an increase of $200,000 from the previous fiscal year attributable to the establishment of several new SRO accounts for funding received through a Federal Equitable Sharing agreement. The agency’s workforce totals 109 FTEs, unchanged from FY 2018.

Program Highlights

Proposed legislation for FY 2019 expands OIGs authority to cover nonprofit organizations and foundations created for the benefit of, or controlled by, the State University of New York (SUNY) and the City University of New York (CUNY).

In addition, the OIG provides oversight for the ongoing planning, design and construction of large scale infrastructure projects like the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, the Jacob Javits Convention Center, and the Moynihan Train Hall.
