What Should I Report?               

Dishonest acts, either known or suspected, should be reported, such as:

Think Before You Speak!

Before making allegations of dishonesty, be reasonably certain of any claims.  Such allegations can seriously and negatively impact the accused individual’s life and adversely affect the working environment of the department.



When Internal Audit receives allegations of dishonesty or other irregularity by an employee, outside contractor, or vendor, they are required to conduct an investigation.  Departmental management should not attempt to conduct investigations nor alert suspected employees of an impending investigation.  In an investigation, objectives include verifying the facts, maintaining objectivity and confidentiality, determining responsibility, and recommending corrective actions to help ensure that similar actions do not occur in the future.  

Reporting Options              

Several options are available to all employees, students and others for reporting known or suspected dishonest acts.
