The University's employees are responsible for upholding its values and ethics in their actions. They should examine internal controls in their own operations and work with their supervisors to strengthen weak controls. They are obligated to report any suspicion or knowledge of unethical or fraudulent activity to the University's Internal Audit Office, Campus Safety, or Legal Affairs.
OHIO has shown its commitment to promoting a culture of ethics and integrity by contracting with EthicsPoint®, a third party provider located in Portland, Oregon, to manage the OHIO Ethics Hotline.
We encourage employees to report concerns through normal lines of communication. However, when employees are uncomfortable using these methods, the Ethics Hotline offers an alternative for filing legitimate concerns in an anonymous manner.
While investigations are performed in a highly confidential manner, it should be noted that records generated in the course of an investigation may be subject to disclosure in accordance with applicable law, including Ohio's Public Records Act.
If you have a concern about possible fraud, waste, abuse of University assets, or other compliance or regulatory issue, we encourage you to file a report through the Ethics Hotline by calling EthicsPoint® toll-free at 1-866-294-9591. Reports may be submitted anonymously.
