Financial Accountability is a top priority at the University of Kansas. With this goal in mind, the Office of the University of Kansas Internal Audit has created a fraud hotline that can be used to report information about fraud, waste or abuse of University resources. (See the Reporting Process page on reporting other issues.)
If you have information regarding known or suspected misappropriation of university funds or resources, we encourage you to report what you know to the University’s Office of Internal Audit. You may submit your concerns or findings in one of four ways:
- Email email@example.com with a description of the allegation. Please see the form below for help gathering your information.
- Complete the Fraud Reporting Form online.
- Call the fraud hotline at (785) 864-1300 and leave a recorded message. This hotline is available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
- Send a written report via U.S. mail to the following address:
KU Internal Audit
1450 Jayhawk Blvd
Strong Hall, STE 351F
Lawrence, KS 66045
You are strongly encouraged to provide as much detail as possible in your correspondence so we are better able to investigate your concerns. If you elect to leave a voicemail message on the hotline or to mail in your tip, please provide a detailed description of the activity you wish to report, the names of the individuals and departments involved, dates and times of the incident, and the location the incident occurred. In addition, if you are aware of any supporting documentation that may be helpful such as invoice numbers, purchase order numbers, check numbers, etc., please include this information as well. Finally, if you wish to have the Office of Internal Audit to contact you, please provide your name, telephone number and e-mail address, along with your preferred method and time for contact.
If you wish to remain anonymous, you may do so by omitting all personal information from your correspondence. To the extent permitted by law, the Office of Internal Audit will treat all information as confidential including the identity of persons coming forward to file reports.
Reports of fraud, waste, or abuse of resources will be prioritized by their materiality to the University and the strength of supporting information provided; reports with immaterial or vague allegations will not be investigated.
This hotline is to be used for reporting instances of fraud only. Complaints not related to fraud will not be pursued by the Office of Internal Audit. If you would like to file a departmental complaint, please contact the department directly. For further information on what constitutes a reportable offense or how the Office of Internal Audit will process fraud reports, please refer to the Reporting Process page.
On behalf of the University of Kansas Office of Internal Audit, we thank you for your cooperation and interest in the welfare of our University.
