Compliance concerns hotline, website always open

The University community is reminded that concerns related to financial, human resources, athletics, research and affirmative action issues can be filed anonymously 24 hours a day, seven days a week to Compliance Concepts Inc. (CCI) at 800-560-1637 or www.mycompliancereport.com/brand/psu.

Notifications of reports received by CCI are sent to the University's Office of Internal Audit for review. Financial matters are investigated by the Office of Internal Audit, and non-financial matters are directed to the appropriate University department for action. Included in the area of athletic issues are matters related to the Athletics Integrity Agreement and any of the areas listed in that agreement with respect to Athletic Department policies and procedure, NCAA constitution and bylaws, the Big Ten handbook, and matters related to the principles regarding institutional control, responsibility, ethical conduct and integrity. This system also allows for University personnel investigating the concern to ask questions of the person making the report. All reports are thoroughly investigated until there is a final resolution and resolutions are issued through CCI's secure online system. 

The use of CCI's services allows for the anonymity of the individual reporting the concerns to maintain an ethical workplace without fear of retaliation. At the same time, it allows the pertinent details of the concern to be fully investigated by the University and corrective action to be taken if needed. Individuals are assigned a unique code that will allow them to follow up to determine the outcome of their concern or to provide additional information if they choose to do so.
