EthicsPoint will forward each report to designated Columbia employees who will evaluate it and determine whether additional investigation is necessary. The Associate Vice President/Chief Audit Officer will oversee this process. If it is determined that a report has merit, it will be forwarded to the appropriate college administrator, as designated by college policy or established practice, for investigation and remedial action, as necessary.
The college will investigate each report and share details only with those with a "need to know." All reports will be kept confidential to the extent practicable. Circumstances may dictate that the college adjust or modify these procedures in a particular case.
