To ensure that your report is given adequate attention, you must provide reliable, accurate, and detailed information.Prior to submitting a report, make sure you have the correct spelling of names, employee and vendor numbers (if available), position and program titles, work location, special funding source (e.g. bond funds, Title I, etc.), and any other pertinent detail. This will ensure that your report is handled properly. Choose one of the following methods to report fraud, waste, and abuse:
