What is the Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Hotline?
You can make a difference!
Accountability is a top priority for the El Paso Independent School District (EPISD). Our policies formalize the expectations of personal honesty and integrity required of employees, students, and others who do business with our District.
The EPISD launched the Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Hotline Program (Hotline) in 2005. By implementing the Hotline as a prevention and detection mechanism, EPISD took a proactive stance to help reduce possible losses and/or liability. All employees are responsible for reporting instances of fraud, waste, or abuse.
The Hotline is not intended to replace the existing internal reporting structure, rather it is a tool meant to supplement the mechanisms we currently have in place. Employees, parents, and community members should report concerns of waste, fraud, abuse, or unethical behavior immediately to an EPISD supervisor, administrator, the Internal Audit Department, Police Services, or the Superintendent (or designee). However, if this is not feasible, the Hotline is provided as a communication option.
