There are many ways to file a complaint.
You may call our Whistleblower Hotline at (800) 952-5665 to file a complaint by talking to one of the State Auditor's employees. The hotline generally is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you call when the hotline is not being staffed, or staff is occupied with other calls, you may leave a voicemail message requesting a return call.
You may file a complaint in the form of a letter to the State Auditor addressed as follows:
Investigations California State Auditor 555 Capitol Mall, Suite 300 Sacramento, California 95814
or you may fax the letter to the State Auditor at (916) 322-2603.
As an alternative, you may complete the electronic version of our complaint form, print it out, and return it by mail or facsimile as stated above.
Although we do not accept complaints by e-mail, you may file a complaint online.
