We are pleased to inform you that as of 12/14/20, we have a new hotline vendor called ComplianceLine (Navex was our previous vendor). The hotline number remains the same (1-877-556-5356); however, the ComplianceLine URL for online reporting is different. Please click on the orange action button at the top of the page to get more information. As a reminder, events presenting an immediate threat to life or property should be reported via 911, not the Compliance Hotline. Additionally, for student concerns, please contact your college Dean’s Office or the Division of Student Affairs.
In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), the University of Florida must provide annual notice to the campus community of the availability of the Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report. The 2020 reports are now available to the campus community, and can be viewed on the Office of Clery Act Compliance’s website or by accessing the link below.
It is time to take the required Compliance and Ethics Training. The training module, called “Doing Your Part for the Gator Good!”, introduces the UF Compliance and Ethics Program and reviews important provisions of the Florida Code of Ethics. Additionally, the training discusses employees’ responsibilities and expectations for reporting compliance concerns, disclosing outside activities, and maintaining proper stewardship of University resources. All UF employees must take this training upon hire and every two years thereafter. You have until December 15, 2020 to take the training.
The latest issue of the Compliance Gazette is available now. This issue includes information about Youth Compliance Services’ new home, passwords etiquette, and news items from Compliance Partners system-wide. You will also have an opportunity to test yourself on Gifts Prohibitions! If you have not taken the new Compliance and Ethics training yet, you can access it right from the Gazette. We are also introducing a new section called, “Ask Your Compliance Officer!” If you have a question, for Terra DuBois, please e-mail us at UF-Compliance@ufl.edu.
