CU EthicsLine provides a way to anonymously report concerns involving fiscal misconduct, violations of state or federal law, serious or recurring violations of university policy, or gross waste of university funds or property. The reporting service is provided by EthicsPoint, an independent company that provides similar services for hundreds of companies and universities. Options for 24/7 reporting are via a toll-free phone number (1.800.677.5590) or online (www.Ethicspoint.com).
The following topics are on the agenda for the Dec 16 Controllers’ meeting: Campus Updates; eReport (Annual Financial Report); OUC Changes; CORE Update; Capitalizing Software; Accounts Receivable (AR) Waiver. Questions on discussion points from this meeting – or any other Controllers’ meeting – should be directed to the appropriate campus controller.
 We've reached a turning point: the external audit is now officially over. And this year the process was marked by a singular event: no questions from the State on our J-Rec. 
Have you made your office work better? Tell us about it! The CU Shared Practices (CUSP) recognition program re-opens for submissions on January 1. The next four months -- through April 30, 2014 -- are your opportunity to share the efficiencies you've engineered and the good ideas you've put in action. Improving processes throughout CU System is what CUSP is all about. Check out the CUSP website at https://www.cu.edu/controller/initiatives/cusp/?page_id=5 .
We had a terrific response to our Dec 5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) course schedule. Most of the courses offered that day filled to capacity. After a few cancellations due to weather, we were able to accommodate additional individuals on the wait lists. We'll provide a recap of participant evaluations shortly. In the meantime, feel free to review next quarter's CPE. Our Feb 18 courses are all new and are described on the CPE website at www.cu.edu/controller/cpe/?page_id=1504.
