Our Citizen Academy program is an engaging 4-week program that gives businesses, religious organizations, and community leaders an inside look at the Office of Inspector General (OIG). Classes will meet in the evenings at the New Orleans Office of Inspector General Office at the Federal Reserve Bank in New Orleans.
The mission of the OIG Citizens Academy is to foster a greater understanding of the role and mission of the OIG in the community through discussion and education. Upon completion, attendees will have a greater understanding of how the OIG assesses and mitigates fraud, waste, abuse, and public corruption through audits, evaluations, and investigations. Upon completion of the Academy attendees will have a firm understating of the root causes of fraud, waste, abuse, and public corruption, as well as the proper protocols for reporting fraudulent behavior.
Candidates are nominated by New Orleans City Employees, the Ethics Review Board, former Citizens Academy graduates, and community leaders. Participants are selected by the Inspector General. Please submit your application below.
