Audit Services will evaluate the individual's concerns to determine if an investigation is required. The individual reporting the issue may be contacted to obtain additional information to help complete the investigation. Information received by Audit Services will be treated in a confidential and sensitive manner. Audit Services staff work in compliance with the Institute of Internal Auditors Code of Ethics which requires that "Internal auditors respect the value and ownership of information they receive and do not disclose information without appropriate authority unless there is a legal or professional obligation to do so". As such, audit staff strive to protect the confidentiality and identities of all individuals providing any information to them. Reports will be accepted anonymously, but it should be understood that this may limit our ability to respond and investigate.
