Report Fraud

Report Fraud

Incidents of suspected fraudulent or irregular activities are required to be reported to System Administration. Outside parties (anonymous or otherwise) may provide written or oral reports to System Administration, or to Campus Authorities who then must report same to System Administration. All such matters shall be turned over to the SUNY System Administration Fraud Committee, which consists of representatives from:

  • University Audit
  • University Counsel
  • University Human Resources

The State University of New York is committed to ensuring its funds and other University resources are used in an effective and efficient matter. The hotline is intended for faculty, staff, students, and others to report suspected fraud, waste, abuse or irregular activities. These activities include improper transactions, such as suspected thefts, losses, misuse or inappropriate action involving State funds, equipment, supplies or other assets. Complaints about other matters, such as personnel issues or academic misconduct, should be brought to the attention of the appropriate office at the campus involved.

If you suspect fraud, waste, abuse, or irregular activities within the University, you may report these allegations anonymously to the University Auditor in the following ways:

Fax: (518) 320-1564

Voice Mail: (518) 320-1539

In all cases, please provide as much detail as possible concerning your specific concerns along with any relevant information you can provide. You do not need to provide your name; however, you may want to provide your name and contact information in the event additional questions arise. All information will be treated as confidential to the extent permitted by law. You should also know that retaliation against anyone who has made a report in good faith under this process is strictly prohibited. Intentional use of this process to make false allegations may subject the maker to disciplinary action.

All allegations and concerns submitted will be reviewed by a committee of SUNY System Administration officials who will then determine the appropriate action to be taken.
