About the Office of Public Integrity

The Monroe County Office of Public Integrity (OPI) was established in 2016 to promote the integrity, efficiency and accountability of Monroe County in its operations.

The Office carries out the Inspector General’s function for Monroe County to promote government accountability and oversight.

Our goal is to promote economy and efficiency of government operations through policy recommendations, audits, investigations and risk assessments.

OPI was formed under section C Article 6 of the Monroe County Charter.

To ensure the office’s independence, the Director is appointed by the Monroe County Legislature for a fixed 5 year term, and is prohibited from registering in any political party.

The office consists of the Director, an auditor, two investigators and a secretary.

OPI conforms to the standards and ethics promoted by the Association of Inspectors General in their “Green Book” of Standards and Principles for Inspectors General.

The Director, auditor and investigators are certified through the Association of Inspectors General.
