Compliance & Ethics


The eDisclose system is designed to assist all USF System employees in meeting the complex statutory requirements and restrictions placed upon them under the Florida Code of Ethics for Public Officers and Employees (FCOE) as codified in USF System Policy 0-027. Here, employees can log into eDisclose to complete their FCOE and outside activity disclosures for review, access eDisclose training videos, and more.


Need to voice a concern? USF has engaged EthicsPoint—a third party hosted hotline—which enables safe, secure, and anonymous reporting of activities which may involve misconduct, fraud, abuse, and other violations of USF policies. Here you can access the EthicsPoint hotline and learn about how the EthicsPoint disclosure review process works.

Higher Education Opportunity Act Initiative

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) Initiative serves as the central oversight entity for driving best practices for USF System HEOA compliance. This initiative includes coordination and publishing of the Student Consumer Information portal (aka: the “HEOA portal”); performance of compliance reviews of campus safety & security reporting (aka: Clery Reporting) across the USF System; and more.

Risk Assessment Workshops

We perform risk assessment workshops at the request of management in order to assist in the identification of risks preventing a USF System organizational unit or process from achieving its goals; and controls to eliminate or mitigate those risks. Our workshops provide valuable insights into where management should best direct their limited resources to mitigate their highest risk areas.

USF System Compliance & Ethics Training

We provide live USF System-Level Compliance & Ethics training sessions for new Administration and Staff employees via the “Welcome to USF” onboarding program; and for managers and supervisors new to USF via the “Managing at USF” program. These programs are administered by Organizational Development in the Division of Human Resources. Here you can view our Compliance & Ethics presentations and more.
