FlagNOTICE: New File Format

In November 2015, OIG began a 3-month transition to a new downloadable file type. We are extending the transition period two months. Please read the updated information below.

FlagUpdated Information (02-10-2016)

Thank you for providing feedback on your experience with the new file type. We discovered that some users are experiencing an issue with 2-digit birth-year formatting. To resolve this issue we are extending the transition two months as we update the system to export a 4-digit birth year. With the March update, we will offer the CSV file with a 4-digit birth year, and users will have one month to test the file.

How to Download the CSV File

  • Right-click the file link.
  • If you use Internet Explorer: choose "Save target as..."
  • If you use Firefox: choose "Save link as..."
  • Choose the location on your computer where you would like to save the file.
  • You may also see below for more instructions.

Additional Information

OIG has been offering supplemental files in DBF format, contained within self-extracting/compressed files (EXE and ZIP). OIG is in the process of phasing out the DBF file types to offer raw data in comma-separated value (CSV) format. All fields and data within the files remain the same. The new CSV format will be replacing the previous formats.

We will eliminate the DBF, EXE, and ZIP files in April 2016. With the March update, we will offer the CSV file with a 4-digit birth year, and users will have one month to test the file.

While the DBF files are still available, we strongly recommend downloading the CSV file and testing it in your software environment. Please report any issues to the following email address which has been set up specifically to receive feedback about your experience: leie.update@oig.hhs.gov. Please note that while we are reading these emails to improve our system, we are unable to respond. However, we are posting answers to frequently asked questions.
