• "My Concern Is" Hotline 

    The Office of the Auditor General (OAG) hotline is operated and managed by the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) OAG. Because the LCPS OAG operates independently, you can be assured that your submission is not, in any way, monitored by LCPS administration. The OAG, as appropriate, will act on your submission. Each method of making a complaint is provided directly to the Auditor General. When submitting a claim choose the method which is best suited to you:

    Hotline #: (571) 252-2488
    Email: FraudWasteAbuseHotline@lcps.org 

    Confidentiality and Privacy (FAQ)

    It is OAG practice that OAG personnel will not disclose the identity of individuals submitting a complaint or information to the Hotline unless the individual consents to such disclosure, or unless the OAG determines that such disclosure is unavoidable in the course of an investigation. While rare, such disclosure may become necessary if required by law, in certain situations involving a specific danger to health, safety, or in other exigent circumstances.

    Providing Information

    The more information you provide, the better we will be able to determine appropriate measures to address your concerns.

    If possible, you should include information that answers the following questions:

    • Who committed the wrongdoing (name of person, company, or organization), who may have been a victim, and who may be a witness?
    • What exactly did the person, company or organization do?
    • Where did the wrongdoing take place?
    • When did the wrongdoing happen?
    • Why did the person, company, or organization commit the wrongdoing?

    While we appreciate the information you report, we will not provide you with the “status” of any action(s) taken as the result of your report. There are many reasons for this, including the need to maintain integrity and appropriate confidentiality in OAG investigations, as well as to protect the legitimate privacy interests of individuals affected by our investigations.

    Thank you for reporting your concerns to us, and for your participation in preventing fraud, waste, and abuse and promoting economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in LCPS activities.

    You may want to consider contacting the Office of the Ombuds for situations which are not related to fraud, waste, and abuse. They provide an independent, confidential resource for students, families, community members, and employees who are seeing informal help to answer questions, resolve concerns, and voice complaints regarding Loudoun County Public Schools matters.
