“The university will not tolerate theft, waste, or abuse of state, university, or university-related funds, property, or other resources through fraudulent means.”
– Policy 1040, Reporting Suspected Fraudulent Activities
By the Numbers
Over 70 percent of allegations at Virginia Tech fall within five general categories:
Organizational Red Flags
Actions to Minimize Fraud
Report a Concern
All allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse are treated seriously and reviewed to the extent allowed by the quality of the information provided and evidence available.
There are three means available for reporting observations of this nature:
02 Contact the Virginia Tech Police Department (540) 231-6411
03 State Internal Auditor's Hotline for Fraud, Waste, and Abuse of State Resources at (800) 723-1615
The identity of the individual conveying the information remains confidential in any of the above cases. The Office of Audit, Risk, and Compliance encourages individuals with information pertaining to potential fraud, waste, or abuse to contact the office directly. Direct reporting
enhances the ability of the reporting individual to assist OARC in gathering the evidence necessary to substantiate the claim and to initiate corrective action. For more information, please consult the University's Policy 1040: Reporting Suspected Fraudulent Activities.
