Reporting Suspected Fraud, Waste or Abuse

Reporting Suspected Fraud, Waste or Abuse

Anyone who has concerns about unethical behavior has a responsibility to report such action to appropriate personnel.  (See policy on Reporting on Fraudulent Activity [3-6]).

Items to be reported include, but are not limited to:

  • Fraudulent activities (e.g., conflicts of interest, kickbacks, extortion, fictitious transactions, etc.)
  • Wasting or abuse of University assets or resources

Raising such concerns is a service to the University and will not jeopardize your employment.
