News from Old Main

EIU INVESTIGATES FALSE TAX RETURNS
A number of Eastern Illinois University employees have reported that their tax returns were not accepted by the IRS because their Social Security numbers have already been used to file individual returns. There is no indication that an information breach occurred at the university; University data are encrypted so as to be unintelligible to unauthorized readers.

We will continue to investigate this issue. University employees with a similar experience should call the Office of the Vice President for Business Affairs at 581-2921.

Information on identify theft with respect to the IRS is available here.

The IRS has identified tax refund fraud as an area of emphasis (see here).

Media reports indicate tax refund fraud has occurred this spring at other universities.

ETHICS -- POLITICAL CAMPAIGNING
Please remember that university employees may not misappropriate university time, resources or property by engaging in prohibited political activities for the benefit of any campaign for elective office or any political organization. A recent OEIG report states that using university computers or university property such as email accounts (this would also include Listserves) constitutes misappropriation of university resources when used for a prohibited political activity. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

As we near the end of the semester, the recycling department can provide 90-gallon blue recycling bins for paper recycling in offices for spring cleaning or in preparation of retirement. If the papers being recycled contain sensitive information (quizzes, tests, etc.), arrangements can be made to transport the container directly from the office to CCAR Industries for recycling so as to prevent sensitive information from being released into the public.

RECYCLING UPDATES
Many people have noticed the recently updated labels across campus. These reflect several changes to campus recycling efforts to try to achieve President Perry's goal of 50 percent recycling across our campus.

Paper recycling can include envelopes with windows still in them.

We have also added glass along with our plastics and aluminum. (No Styrofoam, please.)

Trash has been labeled "landfill" to give a more accurate picture in people's mind of their impact of where the material placed in the container is going. This follows a national trend that has found the term "landfill" to be more effective in diverting waste and encouraging recycling.

We appreciate everyone's efforts to make EIU a greener place to live and work.
