The Office of Special Inquiry (OSI) has wide-ranging jurisdiction but focuses its work on high-profile issues affecting HUD’s ability to carry out its mission. OSI conducts administrative investigations into alleged misconduct by HUD senior officials, and special reviews of sensitive programmatic matters that involve potential violations of law, regulation, policy, or gross mismanagement.

OSI also manages HUD OIG’s whistleblower protection program, which includes conducting investigations into alleged whistleblower retaliation by HUD contractors or grantees, and houses the Whistleblower Protection Coordinator, whose responsibilities include educating HUD employees about prohibitions against retaliation for protected disclosures and the rights and remedies available to employees who have made or are contemplating making protected disclosures.
