The Florida Department of Revenue, Office of Inspector General (OIG) is undergoing an assessment by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) to attain state-level accreditation. A team of assessors from the CFA will arrive April 4, 2019, to examine all aspects of the OIG's Internal Investigations Section, including looking at policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.

As part of the assessment, Department of Revenue employees and the general public are invited to offer comments about the OIG Internal Investigations Section to the assessment team. A copy of the accreditation standards is available through the CFA's website at flaccreditation.org.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments about the Department of Revenue’s OIG, please write: CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, Florida 32302, or email to flaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us.

To be accredited, the OIG must comply with 46 mandatory standards, such as requiring that investigative staff abide by a code of ethics, establishing and following procedures for the release of information to the public in accordance with Florida Statutes, and adhering to strict guidelines when conducting internal investigations of agency members. The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit offices and other areas where compliance can be witnessed.

Once the team of assessors completes their review, they will report to the full Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, which will then decide if the Department of Revenue OIG will be granted accredited status. Accreditation of the Department’s OIG, if approved, will be for a three-year term.
