Reporting Fraud, Waste or Abuse
Reporting of Fraud, Waste or Abuse of State Resources
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 two means available for reporting observations of this nature:
- Contacting the Office of Internal Audit at 434.395.2283 or
- Through the Division of State Internal Audit's Hotline. A toll free telephone number (800.723.1615) is available for anyone to anonymously report suspected fraud, waste or abuse of Commonwealth resources. The hotline number is available Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
The identity of the individual conveying the information remains confidential in any of the above cases.
Internal Audit encourages individuals with information pertaining to potential fraud, waste or abuse to contact either their supervisor or the Internal Audit Department.
Direct reporting enhances the ability of the reporting individual to assist the Internal Audit Department in gathering the evidence necessary to substantiate the claim and to initiate corrective action.
