Our tax dollars fund the State of New Jersey so it is important to ensure that our money is being spent properly. Fraud, waste, and abuse cause unnecessary burdens to be placed on not only the taxpayer, but different branches, departments, and agencies. In 2007, the Office of the State Comptroller was created to battle fraud, waste, and abuse through accountability, audits, and investigations. It also provides an avenue for citizens and groups to report suspected abuse, fraud, or waste to help the agency carry out it’s duties. Please join us as Nicole Acchione and Rich O’Brien of the New Jersey Office of the State Comptroller, Investigations Division, discuss the work of their office and what you can do if you suspect government fraud, waste or abuse.
