We Welcome and Encourage Good-Faith Reporting

The University of Connecticut (University) and University of Connecticut Health Center (UConn Health) are dedicated to the highest standard of ethical and professional conduct in its research, education, and public services activities. Each individual associated with the University/UConn Health are expected to conduct him or herself according to this standard and ensure that his or her actions comply with University/UConn Health policies and relevant laws. To further this end, the University/UConn Health welcomes and encourages reporting of compliance concerns and/or seeking advice regarding compliance issues. The investigation of compliance inquiries is the responsibility of the University’s Office of Audit, Compliance, and Ethics. Any individual may contact the Office of Audit, Compliance & Ethics. If you are not comfortable using the internal resources available, you may report your concern to the REPORTLINE anonymously.

Individuals, who report in good faith possible compliance issues, will be accorded confidentiality and/or anonymity to the extent possible under the law, unless doing so prevents the University/UConn Health from fully and effectively investigating or responding to the reported concerns.  The reporting individual’s identity may also become known during the normal course of the investigation.  While the highest level of confidentiality will be maintained, anonymity therefore cannot be guaranteed.  It is a violation of the University’s/UConn Health’s Code of Conduct to retaliate against any individual who has made a good faith complaint.

If you are not comfortable using the internal resources available, you may report your concern to the REPORTLINE anonymously.  The REPORTLINE serves as a confidential resource for employees to report or seek guidance on possible compliance issues.  It is supported by a third party vendor and staffed by professionals.  It is available to University/UConn Health employees through the telephone and the internet with confidential intake and anonymous reporting options.  You do not have to reveal your identity when you call or submit a report to the REPORTLINE.

The REPORTLINE is NOT a 911 or Emergency Service.  Do not use the REPORTLINE to report events presenting an immediate threat to life or property.  Reports submitted through the REPORTLINE may not receive an immediate response.  If you require emergency assistance or believe a crime is in progress, call 911. 

Whistleblowers

Auditors of Public Accounts

In addition, Section 4-61dd of the Connecticut General Statutes is known as the Whistleblower Act. Employees may also file a written complaint regarding corruption, unethical practices, violation of state laws or regulations, mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority and/or danger to the public safety with the Auditors of Public Accounts. If you file such a complaint with the State Auditors, you may be treated as a whistleblower. Whistleblowers are provided confidentiality and protection from retaliation for bringing the claim. More information regarding this process can be obtained by calling toll free at 1-800-797-1702 or writing to the Auditors of Public Accounts, 18 Trinity Street, Hartford, CT 06016-1628.
