Report Fraud, Waste, or Abuse
To report suspected fraud, waste, or abuse at Tennessee Tech, call 931-372-3045 or access Tennessee Tech's Internal Audit Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Form. In addition, complaints may be lodged by contacting the State Comptroller of the Treasury at 800-232-5454.
In accordance with T.C.A. § 49-14-103, detailed information received pursuant to a report of fraud, waste, or abuse or any on-going investigation is considered working papers of the internal auditor and is confidential. However, circumstances such as a court order, discovery, or subpoena may result in disclosure. Also, if there is a separate legal obligation to investigate the complaint, such as a complaint of illegal harassment or discrimination, anonymity or complete confidentiality cannot be ensured.
For more information, refer to Tennessee Tech Policy 131 (Preventing and Reporting Fraud, Waste, and Abuse), which can be accessed through Policy Central.
