About RPC

Welcome to ReportPublicCorruption.org (RPC), the official website of the Foundation for Ethics in Public Service, Inc. Citizens may report public corruption to this nonpartisan not-for-profit corporation that will investigate, verify and expose credible evidence of illegal and unethical acts committed by local, state and federal public officials. You have the option to report all you know anonymously, or, you may choose to disclose your identity. ReportPublicCorruption.org and its sponsoring organization are dedicated to exposing corruption caused by public servants who violate the trust placed in them, and the honest services expected of them.

The primary purpose of RPC is to provide a national process through which a citizen may communicate her/his knowledge of apparent governmental misdeeds to highly experienced and accomplished investigators for evaluation and possible publication without requiring the identity of the complainant. The RPC staff screens the initial and follow-up reports of corruption and those which rise to the level of reasonable suspicion are provided to investigative reporters located in the respective geographic areas or those who have subject matter expertise.

Sources may submit information anonymously in any format online including video, audio, photographs, and documents. Complainants may mail these items as well as computer disks, USB flash drives, hard drives, and other evidence of public corruption to our mailing address. Documents may be sent to us by facsimile. Whatever the method, and whether anonymous or identified, RPC sources in fact become assets who join with the Foundation in the promotion of better government by way of honest services.

ReportPublicCorruption.org is owned and operated by The Foundation for Ethics in Public Service, Inc. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that seeks to bring a new level of transparency, accountability and integrity to all levels of government in the United States.

In addition to receiving and independently investigating allegations of corruption in government, The Foundation will accomplish its mission by educating government leaders and the general public on the true nature of ethics in government as well as the causes and remedies of public corruption.

Coming this fall, the Foundation plans to launch a more comprehensive online tool to accept anonymous uploads of smoking gun videos, audio files, documents and tips.
