Reporting Waste Fraud and Abuse

MCPS employees are always encouraged to speak freely with their supervisors, even with regard to concerns they may have about their workplace. In certain cases, however, they may feel it is not appropriate to discuss their concerns with their supervisor. For this reason, MCPS has taken additional steps to foster an ethical workplace for all employees by contracting with Lighthouse Services to provide a place where they can report concerns anonymously.  The hotline and website represent the MCPS commitment to fostering an ethical workplace for all employees and to protecting public resources.

Employees can make a report anonymously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Reports can be received in more than 140 languages, including Spanish.
