There may be instances when you suspect that a System
Administration employee's conduct is not in compliance
with applicable laws, rules, regulations, and policies.
To report suspected compliance
violations of any kind, including violations related
to the ethics policy, financial reporting, internal
accounting controls, or audit matters, talk
with your supervisor, contact the System Administration
compliance officer or another appropriate
official, or contact the compliance hotline.
You may also report fraud, waste, or abuse by calling the State Auditor’s Office Hotline at 1-800-TX-AUDIT (1-800-892-8348). The State Auditor's Office provides additional information, including a form to report fraud, waste, or abuse, at http://sao.fraud.state.tx.us.
System Administration's compliance hotline is operated by an outside
vendor. All calls or online reports are accepted by the hotline
and reported to the UT System Administration Compliance
Office. The Compliance
Program, however, is not intended for handling employee
grievances, such as complaints concerning working conditions,
hours of work, wages, or merit raises, and only compliance-related
issues will be investigated.
The compliance hotline telephones are operated 24
hours a day, 365 days a year. You can report information
anonymously to a trained professional
who will ask you questions. A report will be provided
to the System Administration compliance officer, the
associate vice chancellor for employee benefits and services, and
the managing attorney of the Office of General
Counsel within one business
day of your call. All reports are investigated and
addressed as appropriate. System Administration will protect the confidentiality and anonymity of those making a report to the extent provided by law.
