"We recognize that maintaining compliance with the expanding panoply of government rules - and the University policies and procedures - is difficult. But it is a continuing responsibility of every member of the Stanford University community."
— John Hennessy, President of Stanford University
Do you have a concern about non-compliance?
- "A situation in the office makes me uneasy"
- "This transaction appears to be out of compliance with federal regulations"
- "This transaction appears to be out of compliance with tax regulations"
- "I've tried to tell the appropriate people, but nothing seems to be corrected"
- "I'm afraid to speak up"
- "I don't know who to ask!!"
The Compliance Helpline is one aspect of the Institutional Compliance Program. Stanford employees who have concerns of any kind stemming from possible noncompliance with government or external agency regulations, related University policies, errors or irregularities in Stanford's financial accounting practices or policies can report them. Raising such concerns is a service to the University and will not jeopardize your employment.
The Compliance Helpline is confidential, anonymous (if desired), and resolution will be made by knowledgeable individuals. The program is managed by the Director of Internal Audit and Institutional Compliance, and deals with all aspects of the University's regulatory compliance. It includes but is not limited to environmental health and safety, sexual harassment, financial transactions, and NCAA rules.
