Government employees and citizens alike can now anonymously report fraud, waste and abuse of taxpayer dollars to the Tennessee Comptroller's Office over a secure, online connection.
Since 1983, the Comptroller’s office has received more than 17,000 calls on its toll-free telephone hotline for reporting misuse of government funds and property.
In the 2012 legislative session, the Tennessee General Assembly expanded the Advocacy for Honest and Appropriate Government Spending Act to add the online tool.
“This is another tool to help ensure that public money is being spent properly in Tennessee," explained Comptroller Justin Wilson .
People who use the site will be asked to share as much detail as possible about their allegations, including file attachments with supporting documentation.
Information received over the Internet will then be referred to the appropriate agencies or departments when warranted.
