Report Ethics Violations
The prevention of fraud and abuse and the minimization of waste
is the responsibility of every Texas A&M University employee.
When Texas A&M University employees have information about
dishonest, unethical or criminal activities that might affect a
Texas A&M System member, it is their responsibility to report
that information. Reportable activities include, but are not
limited to, theft, corruption, misuse of System vehicles and/or
equipment, and conflicts of interest. See Texas A&M University
System Policies 07.01, Ethics
Policy, TAMUS Employees (PDF) and 21.04,
Control of Fraud and Fraudulent Actions (PDF) .
See the Texas A&M
University Ethics Policy.
To report suspected incidents of fraud, waste, and abuse:
According to Texas A&M University System Policy 21.04,
"except for reportable theft incidents, which shall be reported to
local law enforcement ...an employee shall notify his or her
supervisor, the CEO, or the Chief Auditor."
- If you witness or have knowledge of a reportable theft, notify
the University Police Department at (979)
- The Texas A&M System has established the Risk and
Misconduct Hotline, a phone and web-based reporting system operated
24 hours a day, 365 days a year, that provides a way to anonymously
report instances of suspected wrongdoing. If you have factual
information suggestive of wrongdoings by any A&M System member,
employee, student, or other affiliate, you may submit a report at
the website: Risk and
Misconduct Hotline or call
In addition, to report fraud, waste, and/or abuse occurring at
other Texas State agencies, colleges, or universities contact the
Texas State Auditor's Office:
All reports may remain anonymous.
