Whistleblowers help the government recoup funds and prevent additional wrongdoing. The HHS Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) developed several video resources to help someone report wrongdoing related to a grant or contract, or even retaliation as a result of making such a report or filing a complaint:
- HHS-OIG Whistleblower Training Video for NIH Grants and Contracts Recipients
- 5 Things to Know About Whistleblowers
If you have information about waste, fraud, abuse, misconduct, or whistleblower reprisal, please report it to the HHS-OIG Hotline.
To report NIH-related research misconduct, harassment, and peer review integrity violations, please see our Report a Concern page.
