Dishonest or Fraudulent Activities and Whistleblower Policy is contained in Internal Governing Policy (IGP) 177.
Public employees have an obligation to safeguard the property and assets of the state. The State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (SOEEA) vests jurisdiction in the Executive Inspector General appointed by the governor to investigate allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, mismanagement, misconduct, nonfeasance, misfeasance or violations of the SOEEA, and violations of other related laws and rules.
The Office of the Executive Inspector General (OEIG) must be notified immediately of all alleged acts of misconduct by any employee in, or any entity doing business with, Eastern Illinois University. The OEIG has the full authority to conduct investigations of any matters within its jurisdiction. Purely management issues, academic matters, and student misconduct not related to employment do not have to be reported to the OEIG.
