Can I request that my identity be kept confidential?

Yes. If you request confidentiality, we will not reveal your identity without your permission, except if required by law. You should also be aware that there are provisions of law that, under appropriate circumstances, protect employees from retaliation. If you believe that making a report to the OIG will place you at risk of retaliation, you should inform us of that as well.
