Financial Accountability is a top priority for the City of Waterbury.  With this goal in mind, we have created a Fraud Hotline that can be used to report information about fraud, waste, or abuse of governmental resources in all City Departments and/or Board of Education.

If you wish to report known or suspected wrongdoing you can contact us in one of four ways:

Fraud Hotline: (203) 573-7882

Please provide as many details as possible about the situation.  The more information you provide, the better to address any concerns you may have. Anonymous tips are welcome.


Audit Department Mission and Authority

The City of Waterbury's Municipal Code Section 6B-1 establishes the Finance and Audit Review Commission (FARC) and grants authority to the Internal Audit Department.  The Audit Department is independent and under the direct supervision of FARC.  The Commission is authorized to audit and examine or find cause to be audited and examined, the books and accounts of any and all of the departments and officials of the City, including the Department of Education.  The City Auditor shall work with the Commission to establish audit priorities based on the financial exposure to the City.  This process includes identifying risks, planning engagements, obtaining an understanding of the departmental processes and drawing conclusions, as well as testing the effectiveness of the current system.  Cost reductions or increased revenue sources are analyzed as part of each audit.
