Problem Reporting: EthicsPoint Available

Jonathan | January 26th, 2012

We would like to remind the WVU community that the University has an anonymous system for reporting possible violations of the University’s policies.

WVU has joined with EthicsPoint to establish a website to report possible violations at https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/media/en/gui/14303/index.html. There is also a toll-free hotline: 866-413-1955.

Reporting via the website can be done in one of three categories:
• Accounting and Financial Matters, which focuses on accounting or disclosure issues, fraud, theft or other financial issues
• Research, which covers issues related to compliance requirements of research grants
• Information Technology, which involves issues relating to misuse of technology resources and data privacy/integrity

WVU holds itself to the highest ethical standards and encourages employees, whenever possible, to discuss concerns with their supervisors or appropriate University personnel in such units as Internal Audit, Human Resources or the General Counsel’s Office.

The University will not take retaliatory actions against employees or constituents who make good faith reports about potential misconduct. The EthicsPoint reporting system is a confidential alternative for reporting issues.
