OIG Releases Third Quarter 2011 Report

On October 14, 2011, the City of Chicago Office of Inspector General (OIG) transmitted its third quarter report for 2011 to the City Council and City officials. The report provides a summary of OIG activity from July 1 through September 30, 2011.

In addition to narrative summaries of OIG investigations, the report includes specific policy recommendations OIG proposed to the City, and updates of the OIG’s Shakman Oversight activities, the OIG’s Open Chicago project, and OIG investigations that have led to criminal charges.

OIG also released a separate public report on its investigation into mileage reimbursement in the Fire Prevention Bureau. That report, which can be accessed here details how the OIG found that in 2009 – just a one-year snapshot of what many in the CFD volunteered has been a decades-long practice – 54 FPB inspectors and supervisors conservatively stole approximately $100,000 taxpayer dollars by filing false certifications for mileage reimbursement.
