HHS OIG Grant Self-Disclosure Program

Mandatory Disclosures

HHS grant recipients or subrecipients must disclose evidence of potential violations of Federal criminal law involving fraud, bribery, or gratuity violations, potentially affecting the Federal award. Federal regulation, 45 C.F.R. § 75.113, mandates disclosures of criminal offenses that non-Federal entities must make with respect to HHS grants. Please note that the Office of Inspector General does not track letters certifying that no violations of federal criminal law have occurred, and it is not necessary for grant applicants or recipients to submit such certifications to OIG.

Voluntary Disclosures

Recipients of HHS awards may voluntarily disclose conduct creating liability under the Civil Monetary Penalty Law (CMPL), 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7a, or any other conduct—such as conduct that might violate civil or administrative laws—that does not clearly fall within the scope of offenses described at 45 C.F.R. § 75.113.

Self-Disclosure Guidance

Please review the HHS OIG Grant Self-Disclosure Program Guidance and the Grant Self-Disclosure Submission Form for more information.

Both mandatory and voluntary self-disclosures may be submitted by email to
