  1. The President is responsible for ensuring that the functions within all departments of the College comply with District Board of Trustees Policies and Procedures, State Board of Education Rule, and Florida Statutes. Additionally, all levels of management within the College that hold responsibility for managing budgets, grants, or the use of College property are responsible for monitoring compliance to legislative rules, statutes, and College policies and procedures within their departments. An investigation will follow reported allegations of fraud, irregularities, abuse, illegal acts, and suspected misconduct of College employees.

    1. The President has designated the following positions where any of the specified issues may be reported.

      Associate Vice President, Financial Services
      100 Weldon Boulevard
      Sanford, Florida 32773-6199

      General Counsel
      Office of Legal Affairs
      100 Weldon Boulevard
      Sanford, Florida 32773-6199

    2. Employees reporting suspected wrongdoing are protected under Federal and State law from retaliation by management and other employees. Reporting anonymously is also encouraged for reporting but requires sufficient details of wrongdoing to allow investigation.
    3. Allegations are reviewed to determine the probability that the alleged acts could have occurred. This review will be conducted under the direction of the Executive Vice President/CFO with the knowledge of the President. Investigations will result in referrals to the proper law enforcement agency when evidence suggests that a criminal activity may have occurred or is occurring that warrants a criminal investigation.
