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 of the New Jersey Office of the State Comptroller, Investigations Division, discusses the work of her office, and what you can do if you suspect government fraud, waste or abuse.
Nicole is an attorney with over 20 years of experience and is currently the Assistant Director of the Investigations Division.
