Department of Transportation


Report Waste, Fraud or Abuse graphic The Office of Inspector General (OIG), within the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), was created on February 18,1988. At that time, OIG assumed responsibility for internal auditing, investigation and other assignments delegated by the Commissioner of Transportation. In 2011, OIG assumed responsibility for Records Management, including administration of the Open Public Records Act (OPRA), and NJDOT Ethical Compliance.

The Office of Internal Audit within OIG determines whether the NJDOT's network of risk management, control and governance processes are in compliance with laws, regulations and best practices. Internal Audit also meets routinely with the New Jersey State Comptroller to ensure coordination with that office.

OIG's Internal Investigations Unit investigates all major offenses occurring within or affecting NJDOT, referring cases to Federal, State and other investigative and law enforcement agencies when appropriate.

The Records Management Unit provides document management to satisfy legal requirements, including but not limited to, those stated in the Open Public Records Act (OPRA), coordination of subpoena responses and implementation of litigation holds.

OIG's Ethics Unit works to ensure NJDOT's compliance with applicable ethics laws and policies, including the New Jersey Uniform State Ethics Code and New Jersey Conflicts of Interest Law, both of which are administered and enforced by the New Jersey State Ethics Commission.
