Whistleblower Policy

The UC's Whistleblower Policy encourages employees to report on "improper governmental activities". The policy provides a procedure for filing and addressing whistleblower reports.

California Government Code Section 8547.2 (c) defines "improper government activity" as:

an activity by a state agency or by an employee that is undertaken in the performance of the employee’s duties, undertaken inside a state office, or, if undertaken outside a state office by the employee, directly relates to state government, whether or not that activity is within the scope of his or her employment, and that (1) is in violation of any state or federal law or regulation, including, but not limited to, corruption, malfeasance, bribery, theft of government property, fraudulent claims, fraud, coercion, conversion, malicious prosecution, misuse of government property, or willful omission to perform duty, or (2) is in violation of an Executive order of the Governor, a California Rule of Court, or any policy or procedure mandated by the State Administrative Manual or State Contracting Manual, or (3) is economically wasteful, involves gross misconduct, incompetency, or inefficiency.

 You can "blow the whistle" by reporting your allegations orally or in writing to the Locally Designated Official (LDO) at your campus. At UC Davis, Wendi Delmendo services as our LDO.
