Any member of the campus community who has a reasonable basis for believing a fraudulent act has occurred has a responsibility to properly notify the Office of Audit Services, their supervisor, the appropriate administrator or the Texas Tech Police Department.
The Texas Whistleblower Act protects anyone who, in good faith, reports unlawful activity from retaliation for making such a report.
Texas Tech has selected a private contractor, EthicsPoint, to provide this service for the Texas Tech community. Reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be forwarded to university officials for prompt and appropriate action. The EthicsPoint system is intended to offer an additional means of reporting to individuals unable to use existing reporting procedures. However, we encourage employees and constituents to attempt the resolution of concerns through established channels whenever possible.
Reports may be submitted via:
- EthicsPoint web site: www.ethicspoint.com
- Toll Free Telephone: 1-866-294-9352 (also available in Spanish)
