Frequently Asked Questions


May I Remain Anonymous?

Yes, however, please keep in mind that your decision for anonymity may limit our ability to conduct a complete investigation.

What Do I Need to Know When Contacting the Fraud Hotline?

To act on your allegation, we need you to provide as much identifying information as possible via your comments and documentation. The more you can tell us, the better chance we have of investigating and resolving the allegation.

Who Can Submit a Report Through the Fraud Hotline?

Employees, vendors, contractors and any other interested party.

When Should an Incident be Reported?

Referrals should be made to the hotline when you first learn of the fraud, waste, or abuse.  Keep in mind, the longer the time between the incident and the time it is reported, the more difficult it becomes to investigate.
