UA Confidential Hotline

Protecting You and the University of Alaska 

The UA Confidential Hotline is a third-party, system-wide mechanism for receiving tips on risks and issues that could jeopardize the University of Alaska’s financial health, safety or reputation. It is an intake tool for receiving reports of suspected waste, fraud, abuse, violations of policies, and other critical high-risk violations. The hotline does not replace UA processes for internal follow-up on allegations. As much as possible, people normally assigned to follow up on issues will continue to follow established procedures.

  • Used for reporting critical, high-risk violations at the University of Alaska.
  • For use when an individual believes he or she cannot use regular processes for reporting, perhaps, for example, due to concerns of retaliation.
  • An option for the reporting party to remain anonymous. The reviewer can still conduct dialog with an anonymous reporter if further details are needed.
  • A best practice tool for emphasizing the University of Alaska’s commitment to efficient use of resources and regulatory compliance.
