The Tennessee Comptroller’s Office takes its responsibility to investigate and uncover fraud, waste, and abuse seriously. Since 2016, Comptroller investigators have identified nearly $22 million in fraud, waste, and abuse in Tennessee governments and other entities that receive public funds.

The Comptroller’s Office is pleased to provide a new web-based tool that allows the public to more closely examine fraud investigations across the State of Tennessee. Mapping Tennessee Comptroller Investigations is an interactive map that provides instant access to information about Comptroller’s Office investigations.

Users can zoom in to the map and examine recent reports, including those covering entities in their own communities. The site provides both a snapshot of information and the ability to view full investigative reports.

Journalists may also find the site useful for tracking trends and getting aggregated information for the cities, counties, and regions they cover.

“We believe that publicizing our investigative reports helps entities correct weaknesses that could lead to fraudulent activity,”
said Comptroller Justin P. Wilson.
“Media attention and criminal prosecutions also serve as a deterrent for anyone thinking about stealing public funds. This website offers our Office another way to share information about the important work we do to make government work better.”
