Fraud In The Government, Pllllease

The Defense Department inspector general says it's getting five times as many complaints to its hotline as it did a year ago. 

In all, it has received more than 200 calls since the beginning of the year from whistleblowers alleging waste, fraud, abuse or other misconduct. 

The office credits a new law that went into effect one year ago. It covers people working on Defense Department contracts, grants and task orders. 

Companies with contracts of at least $5 million must post signs around the office about whistleblowers' rights.

And 200 complaints went uninvestigated.
