    Early detection is the best defense against fraud and abuse

    Have you been a witness to fraud or abuse within the BH-BL Central School District? If so, we encourage you to visit the New York State Comptroller’s Office website or call the toll-free fraud and abuse hotline at 1-888-OSC-4555 (1-888-672-4555).

    The Office of the New York State Comptroller provides a confidential and anonymous reporting system to help organizations comply with government mandates and build ethical workplace environments.

    Employees and community members can report fraud and abuse confidentially and anonymously. The hotline is staffed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. by experienced investigators from the Investigations Unit of the Legal Services Division of the Office of the State Comptroller.

    Once a complaint is received, the Investigations Unit may:

    • Conduct a preliminary investigation;
    • Open a full investigation;
    • Refer the complaint to the proper agency or authority; or
    • Close the case.

    Managing fraud, workplace abuses, and other ethical issues in today’s workplace is highly important. The BH-BL Central School District is committed to identifying and resolving fraud and abuse in an efficient and effective manner and enhancing the overall awareness of accountability for taxpayers’ money.
