Ethics and Compliance Reporting Portal
The Technical College System of Georgia, and its 22 Colleges have a responsibility to adhere to the highest ethical standards and principles in the fulfillment of our mission. In recognition of this responsibility, we strive to foster and cultivate an environment in which ethics and integrity are paramount to every facet of our operations. TCSG has codified this commitment within our Ethics and Standards of Conduct for Employees and Ethical Responsibilities of Employees.
As such, TCSG strongly encourages the reporting of all forms of unethical conduct and non-compliance. To provide an effective mechanism for reporting such activity, TCSG established the Ethics and Compliance Reporting Portal, hosted through EthicsPoint. Instances of known or suspected unethical and non-compliant activities within one of our 22 Technical Colleges or within our System Office may be reported via http://tcsg.ethicspoint.com/ or by calling 844-910-4220 which is available seven days a week/24 hours a day, and allows for anonymous reporting.
The Technical College System of Georgia appreciates your willingness to come forward and report concerns involving known or suspected unethical and non-compliant activities taking place within one of our 22 technical colleges or here within our System Office. TCSG takes these matters seriously, and will not tolerate retaliation against individuals who report concerns in good faith.
Only matters involving non-compliance, unethical, or fraudulent behavior will be investigated. Issues for which there is another resolution procedure will be referred to the appropriate parties.
