Reporting Fraud



As stated in the Regents’ Policy Manual, all University employees have a duty to report instances of suspected fraud to Internal Audit. Internal Audit will coordinate internal investigations of suspected fraud with the appropriate University officials (e.g., Office of Legal Counsel, Campus Police, University officers, the Compliance Office, and/or departmental personnel) as deemed appropriate.


If you become aware of issues of potential fraud or related misconduct, please speak directly with the Chief Audit Executive:

What is Fraud?


According to the Institute of Internal Auditors International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing fraud is, "Any illegal act characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust. These acts are not dependent upon the threat of violence or physical force. Frauds are perpetrated by parties and organizations to obtain money, property, or services; to avoid payment or loss of services; or to secure personal or business advantage."
