In addition to performing internal audits, the Internal Audit Department conducts investigations arising from concerns reported by University employees. Such concerns usually involve fiscal improprieties, including fraud, theft, falsification of records, and improper use of University assets. In conducting such investigations, Internal Audit maintains its objectivity and independence so that pertinent and accurate information can be obtained and assessed in determining the final outcome of the investigation.
Employees are encouraged, whenever possible, to bring any concern to the attention of their supervisor or appropriate University department. If you believe that a concern is life threatening, call your local University police department using the list below. If you have a fiscal related concern, you may contact Internal Audit directly by phone at 412-624-4246.
