No organization or institution is exempt from the potential for fraud and the resulting risk to institutional reputation and its employees.  Activities during the week will help bring awareness to fraud prevention and will reinforce the USG’s culture of recognizing the hard work of all employees, and promoting shared values of integrity, excellence, accountability and responsibility.

The theme for the week is “The SPIRT of USG.”  The activities planned will emphasize: Stewardship, Prevention, Integrity, Responsibility, Inspiration, and Trust.

This awareness program is part of a comprehensive Ethics and Compliance Program which includes ethics training, mandatory compliance training, assurance audits, consulting engagements and an ethics and compliance reporting hotline.
