The O’Hare 21 Project is a multi-year, multi-billion infrastructure construction project to further modernize one of the world’s busiest airports. In an effort for more transparency and accountability in the process, Department of Aviation, the Chicago Department of Procurement Services, and the Office of Inspector General have partnered together and enlisted the assistance of professional integrity monitors, or “IMs”. The IMs are given full access to contractor records and personnel. They monitor contractors’ compliance with laws, policies and procedures, and contract requirements. The IMs work to foster a culture of compliance, transparency, and accountability, to ensure taxpayers get the full benefit of work contracted by the City of Chicago.
This Tipline is one of many tools used to reduce fraud and waste in O’Hare 21. Housed within the Office of Inspector General and operated by its staff, the tips and complaints submitted through this tool, will undergo the same care and confidentiality as other matters submitted to the Office of Inspector General.
