If you have suspicion or knowledge of fraud, waste, abuse or misuse of University resources; violation of laws, regulations or policy; ineffective operations; or other concerns related to activities that may be detrimental to the UNC System Office, the University and its constituents or its reputation, please contact internal audit. There are three anonymous and confidential ways for reporting:
- Contact InternalAudit@northcarolina.edu or the Chief Audit Officer, Joyce Boni via email or phone (919) 843-3623.
- File a report online (see form link below)
- Via the NC Office of the State Auditor hotline’s website
Note: Employees who, in good faith, report unethical activity are protected by the North Carolina whistleblower act against any retaliation for making such a report (Click here to view the Whistleblower Act). NCGS 126-84 encourages employees to report evidence of activities that include but are not limited to a violation of law; fraud; gross misuse or mismanagement of monies; or abuse of authority. UNC System Office finance policies and procedures provide further guidance on reporting and investigating the misuses of state property, including what employees are required to report and the steps that should be taken.
When sharing concerns or suspected unethical activity with internal audit, please provide as much detail as possible about who, what, when, where, how, and how much/how often. You do not have to provide your name or contact information. However, providing this information is extremely helpful, as it will allow us to contact you should we have further questions or need additional details. Provided information will be treated as confidential and privileged to the extent permitted by law.
