Integrity in Brief
New York City’s Department of Investigation (DOI) is responsible for overseeing thousands of contracts between the City and private firms, worth more than $14 billion annually. To fulfil this mandate, DOI vets every City contract and conducts regular audits and investigations to detect and address potential instances of waste, fraud, abuse, or corruption.
Certain City contracts may require extra oversight due to their nature, scale, or exigency or concerns about a contractor’s past record of performance. In such cases, DOI might require contractors to comply with a regime of closer scrutiny and more regimented oversight to deter misconduct and detect potential issues early.
