Compliance Hotline/Raising Questions and Concerns

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley encourages employees to raise compliance related concerns and to report any suspected violations of law, regulations or policy.

Employees are encouraged to address compliance concerns through UTRGV’s normal administrative channels. If you have compliance related questions or wish to report suspected compliance violations of any kind:

  1. Talk to your supervisor,
  2. Contact the UTRGV Compliance Officer or Compliance Manager, or
  3. Call the Compliance Hotline

The Compliance Hotline is available for situations where conventional channels are uncomfortable or otherwise inappropriate, or for times when you wish to raise a concern anonymously. The Hotline is operated by an outside company not affiliated with UTRGV and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Your call will be taken by a trained professional who will ask you questions about your concern. Calls can be taken in English or in Spanish. Calls can be made anonymously and will not be traced.

You do not need to know the exact law, regulation or policy, or be certain a violation has occurred or will occur. If you are uncertain, the better course of action is to report. It is important that you provide enough information to allow your concerns to be adequately investigated and addressed.

UTRGV policy, UT System Board of Regents' Rules and Regulations, and state law prohibit retaliation against anyone who, in good faith, reports an instance of suspected non-compliance or participates in a compliance investigation.
