Fraud or Misuse of Grant or Contracting Funds

As a government agency, the SSA oversees hundreds of contracts and grants. The Fraud Hotline processes allegations of fraud, waste, or mismanagement related to contracts and grants.

The following are examples of grant or contract fraud:

  • A contractor is using substandard supplies.
  • A contractor has paid or offered to pay an SSA employee in return for winning the contract.

If you believe someone is misusing an SSA grant or contract, please contact the OIG Fraud Hotline.
