Reporting Fraud

The SUNY Oswego Internal Control Department investigates allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse as well as violations of State Finance law or regulations affecting college programs and operations. A variety of situations may be considered fraud including:

  • theft of materials and assets involving college employees;

  • outright bribery of a college employee;

  • fraud or misuse of grant or contracting funds;

  • standards of conduct violations;

  • misuse of university computing, information, and record systems;

  • conflicts of interest;

  • supplemental employment/outside activities;

  • gifts and entertainment;

  • employer/employee relationships;

  • forgery or alteration of documents.

Report violations and waste to your Department Chair or supervisor or contact the IC Officer or the IC Coordinator. You may also report fraud—confidentially and anonymously—by calling the Internal Control Hotline at x1200 on campus or 315.312.1200 off-campus. Finally, you can also report fraud to the State University of New York Fraud Hotline, run by the State University Audit Department, at 518.320.1539, or contact their website
