The University of North Texas System is committed to operating in compliance with all federal and state laws and regulations.
To help uphold this commitment, the UNT System Office of Compliance works to help ensure that our system administration teams understand the requirements of applicable laws and that they have access to helpful training in order to conduct business in an effective and ethical manner.
Team members across UNT World may report suspected compliance failures to their supervisors, as well as to UNT System authorities including the Offices Human Resources, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Internal Audit, General Counsel and Compliance. Our employees also have the right to report suspected compliance failures to the appropriate state or federal regulatory agency that monitors compliance.
In situations of suspected compliance failure when anonymity is preferred, individuals may utilize the UNT System Compliance Trust Line to submit concerns in confidence. This reporting service is hosted by a third party provider, NAVEX Global, to help ensure anonymity. Individuals may also call 877.606.9187 to submit their concerns. In addition to the UNT System Compliance Trust Line, individuals may pursue another option for reporting suspected fraud, waste and abuse by contacting the Texas State Auditor's Office. The Texas State Auditor's Office telephone number is 1.800.TX.AUDIT (892-8348) and their website is https://sao.fraud.state.tx.us.
The UNT System Compliance Trust Line is in place to provide assurances that all individuals throughout UNT World are held to the highest standards of ethical behavior. Most importantly, this Trust Line is all about trust. In that light, the UNT System and its institutions do not tolerate retaliatory action toward individuals who in, good faith, report, seek guidance regarding compliance matters, or participate in any compliance related investigations. Any individuals found to have engaged in retaliation will be disciplined up to and including termination.
