9. Reporting Suspected Misconduct

The University of Colorado is committed to meeting federal and state legal requirements and fostering a culture of compliance. University employees are expected to report known and suspected violations of university policies, as well as violations of applicable laws and regulations to appropriate offices. The university provides several options for reporting violations. Employees are encouraged to first report any known or suspected violations to their direct supervisor. Fraud, theft, embezzlement, abuse, or waste may be reported to the University Department of Internal Audit. The University's Ethics Hotline allows individuals to anonymously report concerns involving a possible violation of law, regulation, or policy. All university employees who act in good faith in reporting known or suspected violations of law or university policy are protected from retaliation.
