Report a Concern

Procedures for reporting suspected compliance deficiencies

Dartmouth takes research compliance extremely seriously. If federal funds are involved, we must be prepared where appropriate to take interim administrative steps to protect federal funds and ensure that the purposes of the federal assistance are carried out. Institutional procedures for handling suspected deficiencies must maintain a common, formal, and easily available entry point for receiving all allegations.

Make a report directly to the director of a compliance area, or make an anonymous report.

The first step to report a suspected compliance deficiency is for the individual(s) to communicate directly to the Director of the compliance area noted below.

However, if an individual is not comfortable with a direct communication, or feels direct communication has not remedied the situation, he or she may make an anonymous report via the Dartmouth Compliance and Ethics Hotline, a third-party vendor contracted by Dartmouth College to ensure that issues raised are addressed and that all individuals can freely ask questions and raise concerns without fear of retaliation.

What happens when a report is made?

Reports alleging research misconduct will activate the Dartmouth Research Misconduct Policy. All other allegations of wrongdoing will be investigated by the appropriate administrative body.
