Farmingdale State College is committed to the timely identification and resolution of issues related to suspected fraud, waste, abuse or irregular activities that may result in the inappropriate use of its funds or other College resources. The purpose of the Fraud Hotline is to enable faculty, staff, students and others to report suspected activity. These activities include theft, loss, misuse or other inappropriate action involving College funds, equipment, supplies or other college assets.
This Hotline service is not a substitute for, nor does it supersede, any existing reporting methods or protocols already in place. Personnel issues, academic misconduct or other matters should be communicated to the appropriate College office.
If you suspect fraud, waste, abuse or irregular activities within the Farmingdale campus community, you may report these concerns anonymously to the College's Internal Control Officer using any one of the following communication channels:
Farmingdale State College
Internal Control Office
Horton Hall Room 167
2350 Broadhollow Road
Farmingdale, NY 11735
You do not need to include your name, however, you may want to include your name and contact information in the event questions arise. Reports to the Hotline should contain as much information as possible to support the allegation and facilitate the investigation. Due to confidentiality concerns, it may not be possible to inform users of the process or outcome of any investigation or action taken.
All submissions will be handled in a timely manner by the Internal Control Officer who will determine the appropriate action to be taken. A committee within Administration will be apprised of all allegations and resolutions. All information will be confidential to the extent permitted by law. Retaliation against anyone who has made a report in good faith under this process is strictly prohibited. Intentional use of this process to make false allegations may result in disciplinary action.
For your information, a Fraud Hotline can also be found on the SUNY website External link.
