DHS provides many resources to keep the public informed about activities, and performance of the agency and providers we license.
The DHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) accepts tips and complaints about potential fraud, waste and abuse in Minnesota Department of Human Services programs. Your information will be reviewed promptly. You are not required to leave contact information but doing so would allow an investigator to contact you if more information is needed.
