Compliance Hotline 1-877-217-2426 or Online

*If you are an employee of another UT System institution, please see information at the end of this page about your institution's compliance hotline and the System-wide Compliance hotline.

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


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, performance evaluations, 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.  


The toll-free number for the System Administration compliance hotline is 1-877-217-2426.


You may also make an anonymous report online using the Web Reporting System.


UTS131 - Protection from Retaliation for Reporting Suspected Wrongdoing and state law prohibit retaliation against any employee who, in good faith, reports an instance of suspected wrongdoing or participates in an investigation pertaining to allegations of wrongdoing. INT154 - Procedures for Handling of an Allegation of Retaliation provides guidance to System Administration employees.
