Safe disclosure

UVic encourages university community members, as well as the public, to report significant matters. The UVic Safe Disclosure process provides a confidential and safe means to speak out about concerns related to:

  • Financial irregularities
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Other matters that you do not feel comfortable reporting through other UVic mechanisms (for a list scroll down to Other Types of Concerns).

Financial irregularities

A financial irregularity is a departure from standard UVic financial / administrative procedures, policy requirements, or laws involving funds or other assets, and should be reported as soon as possible.

Response to suspected financial irregularities 

UVic’s response to suspected financial irregularities (as well as other types of concerns) consists of three stages:

  1. Identification and reporting
  2. Investigation (if necessary)
  3. Resolution

All reports of financial irregularities should be promptly brought to the attention of Internal Audit. 

All departments at UVic are obliged to act in compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) and any relevant UVic policies.

UVic does not tolerate any acts of retaliation against anyone who discloses a concern. If you are subject to any acts of retaliation, please report it to your supervisor or area lead, or contact Internal Audit confidentially via email (, phone (250-853-3123), or by clicking on the button below:
