The University of California is committed to maintaining the highest standards of conduct in the fulfillment of its education, research, public service and patient care mission. The University’s Whistleblower Policy (PDF) provides multiple avenues for employees to bring forward concerns of suspected improprieties. Faculty and staff are encouraged to bring forward concerns about possible improper governmental activity directly to their supervisor, department head, Locally Designated Official (LDO) or other appropriate university offices or officials.

The University established a system-wide independently-operated whistleblower hotline to allow for calls or web-based reporting from faculty, staff and students with a provision for anonymous reporting. The hotline relays the reported concerns to appropriate university officials for processing. This hotline is staffed seven days a week, 24 hours per day and is capable of receiving reports in a number of different languages.

The toll-free number is (800) 403-4744. Web-based reports can be made by accessing the UC EthicsPoint Hotline website. More information about the whistleblower process can be found on the UC Whistleblower website. The UCLA whistleblower poster (PDF) identifies other channels for reporting improper governmental activity, including the California State Auditor, the California Attorney General and contact information for reporting fraud and abuse involving federal programs. The UCLA whistleblower poster and the California State Auditor poster (PDF) are published online as PDF files so they can be printed and displayed in workplace areas.

State law requires that the University of California annually distribute to its employees a message from the California State Auditor that provides an explanation of the California Whistleblower Protection Act. Please find the 2018 California State Auditor Reporting message (PDF) linked here.
