Reminder: What is the purpose of the reporting line for fraud and fiscal abuse?

Kent State University is responsible for the stewardship of university resources and is committed to the highest standards of fiscal responsibility. The reporting line provides a formalized mechanism to communicate concerns related to fraud and fiscal abuse. 

Employees are encouraged to discuss concerns with a supervisor, department head or another appropriate university official. If this is not a viable option or if you believe your concerns have not been addressed after reporting fiscal fraud or abuse, reports may be communicated through the reporting line provided by an independent company, and can be accessed 24/7 by calling (800) 683-5621 or via the EthicsPoint web portal.

Individuals making a report have the option to remain anonymous. Individuals who engage in good faith disclosure of a suspected violation are protected from retaliation in accordance with university policy 7-02.9, Administrative policy for reporting and investigating fraud and fiscal abuse.

For more details on reporting concerns of fraud and fiscal abuse, visit the university’s Internal Audit website for Reporting Fraud and Fiscal Abuse.
