The County Auditor established the Good Government Hotline to provide Multnomah County employees and the public with a method of reporting concerns about suspected fraud, abuse of position, and waste or misuse of County resources. These reports will be reviewed by the County Auditor’s Office.
The County has also expanded the Hotline to provide a means for reporting other types of complaints for Multnomah County employees and the public:
Reports of unpermitted uses or disclosures of protected health information subject to HIPAA will be reviewed by the County Privacy Officer. Complaints of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation may be reviewed by Multnomah County Human Resources or the Office of Diversity and Equity.
The public can also use the Hotline to file a complaint with the Department of Community Services Ombudsman office for concerns with Animal Services, Elections, Land Use and Transportation Planning, Road Services and Bridges, Survey Divisions, or department Administration.
The Good Government Hotline maintains the confidentiality of reports, including the identity of the reporter, to the extent legally possible. The Good Government Hotline allows you to make confidential reports online or by speaking to a trained professional by phone. To file a complaint, click Report Online or call 888-289-6839.
When you call or submit a report, please be as detailed as possible, including names, dates, locations and witnesses.
