Abstract

To an oversight agency, an annual report is more than a financial statement. At the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for the City of Philadelphia, we view our annual report as an opportunity to increase awareness of our office, to encourage public reporting, and to deter wrongdoing. Because most investigations originate from tips submitted by citizens, we see community engagement as critical to our success.

In our years of report writing, we have gained a lot of experience about what works and what does not work, and we have distilled that experience into six basic lessons for maximizing the impact of an annual report.
