OCERS Ethics, Compliance, and Fraud Hotline

The OCERS Board of Retirement and management are committed to the highest standards of ethics, compliance with the law, and prudent management of plan assets.

As part of this commitment, OCERS has established an Ethics, Compliance, and Fraud Hotline for plan participants, employees, vendors, and the public to report concerns about suspected fraud, waste, or violations of law or policy. OCERS has contracted with an independent company, EthicsPoint, to accept calls and internet reports twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The information you provide will be sent to OCERS Internal Audit Division by EthicsPoint on a completely confidential and anonymous basis.

The OCERS Code of Conduct contains general guidelines for acceptable and lawful business practices, to promote professionalism, and establish standards of conduct applicable to OCERS employees.

To Make a Report

After you complete your report, you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key" and you will establish a password. Write down your report key and password, and keep them in a safe place. Reports will be reviewed by the OCERS Internal Audit Division. A response to your report and/or follow-up questions will be posted to the EthicsPoint’s system within five to eight business days. After eight business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.
