Contact the Internal Auditor
Western Washington University’s Office of the Internal Auditor has established this
web access form to provide the campus with a mechanism to ask the auditor questions,
provide the auditor with information about concerns that you may have regarding
university activities or make comments about the audit process. There may be times
when an employee has a concern but does not know who to talk to. Internal Audit
encourages university employees to first consider discussing their concerns with
their supervisor but provides this anonymous contact form for those
employees who wish to report within the university, but outside of their department.
When you submit information using the web form below, you can choose whether
to send your personal information such as name and contact information. If you choose
not to share your contact information with us then your input will be entirely
anonymous. Internal Audit will handle all information received in a confidential
and discrete manner. It is expected that any comment or concern provided
to Internal Audit will be submitted by Western Washington University faculty, staff
or students in good faith.
Please note: If you wish to file a complaint under the Washington State Whistleblower program, please go to
If you wish to make an official Washington State Whistleblower report through one of Western’s official designees, please refer to the list of designees on the Office of the Internal Auditor’s Reporting Improper Government Action web page at

or university facility may be at risk, please call University Police immediately
