Ethics Hotline Back
(2007-09-28)
(WOUB) - Ohio University is re-instating a telephone hotline for anonymous reporting of suspected fraud or policy violations.

The university shut down the reporting system at the end of August after a year and a half because attorneys determined that information that COULD reveal the identity of the people reporting the problems is PUBLIC information.

At the time, university officials said the ethics hotline would re-start once it put some safeguards in place.

Now university trustees at their quarterly meeting have authorized its reactivation, but are limiting the reporting method to phone calls only.
