In support of International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 13-19, 2016, Fort Valley State University joins the University System of Georgia’s “The SPIRT of USG” by hosting activities to bring awareness to further promote an ethical culture on our campus.
No organization or institution is exempt from the potential for fraud and the resulting risk to institutional reputation and its employees. Activities during this week will help bring awareness to fraud prevention and will reinforce the USG’s culture of recognizing the hard work of all employees, and promoting shared values of integrity, excellence, accountability and responsibility.
Our theme for this week is “The SPIRT of USG.” The activities planned will emphasize:
This awareness program is part of a comprehensive Ethics and Compliance Program which includes ethics training, mandatory compliance training, assurance audits, consulting engagements and an ethics and compliance reporting hotline.
The activities planned for this week are as follows:
- National Ethics Awareness Course via D2L
2. Compliance Review of annual and sick leave usage.
