Harris County is committed to ensuring transparency, accountability, and integrity in all of its activities and requires lawful and ethical behavior from Harris County officials, employees and affiliated parties. The Harris County Auditor’s confidential hotline and website allow employees, vendors, grant applicants and the general public to anonymously report instances of fraud, waste or abuse of the County’s funds, resources and projects 24/7 in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Vietnamese.

You can choose to make your name and contact information anonymous. All reports of possible fraud, waste or abuse will be investigated by the County Auditor’s Office. All reports will be kept confidential to the extent provided by law.

Harris County’s Personnel Policies & Procedures provide protection to employees who report suspected ethical violations or fraud. Retaliating against any employee for reporting suspected violations is strictly prohibited.
