Local Unit Review
Generally an initial concern should be brought to the supervisor of your local unit for review since it is that person who would best understand the issues and concerns and would be expected to be in the best position to resolve the issue. Concerns may also be reported further up administrative channels.

Confidential/Anonymous Hotline Service
If you are not comfortable reporting your concern through the University’s normal administrative channels, the University of Florida has implemented the UF Compliance Hotline, a confidential/anonymous way for you to report concerns of suspected wrongdoing. The UF Compliance Hotline is provided by “The Network,” a company that provides confidential hotline reporting services to many other universities and corporations. The UF Compliance Hotline is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
How to Use the UF Compliance Hotline
There are two methods to use the UF Compliance Hotline:
- By phone, you are greeted by a trained interviewer who documents in detail the situation you describe. You don’t have to give your name, and the call or transaction is not recorded or traced
- A report number will be assigned. Then, the information will be relayed to the appropriate University office to investigate your concern
- Using the report number, you may call or e-mail to add more information
