What We Do
Internal Audit personnel report on the adequacy of internal controls, the accuracy and propriety of transactions, the extent to which assets are accounted for and safeguarded, and the level of compliance with institutional policies and government laws and regulations. In addition, we provide analyses, recommendations, counsel and information concerning the activities reviewed.
Conflict of Interest
In pursuant of our core mission and values, and compliance with federal and state laws, the university has created the Conflict of Interest Policy (PDF) to identify potential instances that may interfere with an employee’s unencumbered judgement.
Ethics and Compliance Hotline
The University has contracted with an independent company, EthicsPoint, to provide an ethics and compliance hotline. This service allows any member of the Lehigh Community (faculty, staff and students) the opportunity to anonymously and confidentially report concerns they have regarding the financial and operational aspects of the University. This would include financial or ethical concerns, fraud, conflicts of interest, noncompliance with governmental or university requirements, etc.
