 OIG Mission

The Mission of the Office of the Inspector General is to provide an independent system of accountability to the Governor, the General Assembly, and the citizens of the Commonwealth for the quality of services provided by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), and other licensed providers of behavioral health and developmental services, in order to protect the health and welfare of service beneficiaries.

The OIG’s Mission is authorized by the Code of Virginia §§ 37.2-423, 37.2-424, & 37.2-425 that requires the Office to inspect, monitor, and review the quality of services in state facilities and other licensed providers, and to make policy and operational recommendations in response to complaints of abuse, neglect or inadequate care.

To support its Mission, the OIG reports semi-annually to the Governor, the General Assembly, and the Joint Commission on Health Care concerning significant problems, abuses, and deficiencies relating to the programs and services of state facilities and other licensed providers.
