Each UT System institution has implemented a compliance hotline that provides a confidential way for employees to report instances of suspected wrongdoing in a manner that preserves anonymity and assures non-retaliation. In addition, U. T. System Business Procedures Memorandum 67 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.


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 your institution's Compliance Officer or Manager or another appropriate official, or call your institution's compliance hotline (see Institution Hotline Numbers).


Employees are encouraged to address compliance concerns through their institution’s normal administrative channels.  However, if you are not comfortable reporting the situation to your institution and want to contact System Administration officials about the matter, please report the situation to the System-wide Compliance Officer at or by phone at 512-499-4390, or call the System-wide Compliance Hotline at 1-888-228-7786.


The System-wide Compliance Hotline is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can anonymously report information to a trained professional who will ask you questions. A report will be provided to the System-wide Compliance Officer, the Vice Chancellor for Administration, the Executive Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs, and the Vice Chancellor and General Counsel within one business day of your call. All reports are investigated and addressed as appropriate.


All calls are accepted by the hotline. However, the System-wide Compliance Program 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. These complaints should be addressed by talking with your supervisor or following your institution's greivance procedures.
