FraudNET Confidentiality Policy

Individuals who provide information on allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement of federal funds may:

    • Provide information anonymously,
    • Provide information, provide your identity and contact information, and
      request that your identity be protected throughout the investigative process, or
    • Provide information and provide your identity and contact information
      with no restrictions.

We prefer that you provide a way for FraudNET analysts to contact you in case we need more information about your submission. The FraudNET policy is to honor requests for confidentiality and not to release information that would identify such individuals unless required to do so by subpoena. This has never occurred in the history of the GAO FraudNET.
