Office of Inspector (OIG) Referrals

Office of Inspector General (OIG)

An OIG referral is to be made when a custodial person (CP) does not report Child Support Services (CSS) information correctly to DHS (non-custodial parent [NCP] in home, child not in home, direct child support being received and not reported, etc.) and the following criteria has been met:

  • Has improperly received at least $500;
  • Has had no judgments for recovery of the overpayment;
  • Because of the 3 statute of limitation, the last incident of fraud can be no older than two and one-half years prior to the date of the fraud report; and
  • Resides in Oklahoma

Below are the steps necessary to complete a referral:

  1. Complete the OIG referral form. This can be found in Outlook: Public Folders/All Public Folders/OCSS All/Consistent Excellence/Finance/Overpayments/Resources
  2. Send the referral to a supervisor for review to ensure the referral is appropriate.
  3. Upon supervisory approval, the referral is sent to OIG at OIG.REFERRALMANAGEMENTUNIT@okdhs.org with any supporting documentation available.
  4. Also send all documents to *OCSS.OIG.Referrals (this email is monitored by State Office (STO)/Center for Finance and Budget (CFB) to track the OIG referrals sent by CSS).
NOTE: Even if a situation does not meet the OIG criteria listed above, notify IV-A, if appropriate, of any information not reported by the CP receiving services.
