The Office of the City Auditor in partnership with The Network, a technology company, provides an independent Fraud, Waste and Abuse Hotline Service for the City of Dallas. The hotline service is available to City employees, contractors, and Dallas community members who want to report improper or illegal activities directly related to City of Dallas resources only. Anonymous reports are accepted. Multi-lingual calls are accepted 24-hours a day, seven days a week. All calls are confidential.
The Fraud, Waste and Abuse Hotline is accessed by calling a toll free phone number (877-860-1061) or through a confidential web based report.
In 1992, the Dallas City Council authorized the Office of City Auditor to implement and operate the City of Dallas Fraud Hotline to create an environment to encourage early reporting of fraud, waste and abuse discovered by others. The Office of City Auditor's duties and responsibilities include monitoring and evaluating the City's accounting and property records, funds and general accounting systems and conducting special audits and investigations. The City Auditor serves as an independent evaluator of City activities on behalf of the City Council and citizens of Dallas. The Office assists the City Council and City management by reporting on the effectiveness of various City operations and by providing recommendations as to how they can be improved.
