Reporting Fraud, Waste & Abuse

The Office of Audit and Advisory Services actively pursues reports of fraud, waste, or abuse involving University resources. There are two avenues available for reporting observations of this nature:

  • contact the Office of Audit and Advisory Services at (540) 831-5966 or
  • contact the Office of the State Inspector General (OSIG).  OSIG operates the State Fraud, Waste and Abuse Hotline, which you may reach at (800) 723-1615

The identity of the individual conveying the information remains confidential in either case. The Office of Audit and Advisory Services encourages individuals with information pertaining to fraud, waste, or abuse to contact the University Auditor directly. Direct reporting enhances the ability or the reporting individual to assist the Office of Audit and Advisory Services in gathering the evidence necessary to substantiate the claim and to initiate corrective action.

All allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse are seriously considered and pursued to the extent allowed by the quality of the information provided and evidence available.
