Message from Executive Inspector General Maggie Hickey

It is my privilege to serve the people of Illinois as the Executive Inspector General for the Agencies of the Illinois Governor.  The primary mission of the Office of Executive Inspector General (OEIG) is to promote accountability in the public entities under our jurisdiction. Our office investigates allegations of misconduct. We strive to ensure that all state employees are familiar with the rules of ethical conduct, and that employees and the public alike trust this office to investigate complaints fairly, confidentially, and timely.

Each and every day, we do our utmost so that:

• our office is independent, objective, and fair;
• individuals who wish to report misconduct may easily do so with confidence;
• we conduct our investigations without bias and in a timely manner; and
• our work is transparent to the fullest extent allowed by law.

If you wish to file a confidential report of activity you believe violates state laws, regulations or rules, please do so here.

We update this website frequently to educate the public about trends in ethics matters, including information about recently released investigative reports, disciplinary decisions related to violations of the Ethics Act, and appeals of our revolving door employment determinations.

Thank you for visiting our website.
Maggie Hickey
Executive Inspector General
