For example,  city employees accepting gifts on the job. 

Or conducting outside business while on city time

I posted this 10 days ago and noone from the city has responded. Do they read these ideas?  Or only comment on ones that relate to parks, city projects , etc?

I will follow up with the city managers office.

Hi John - yes, we do read these!

This particular suggestion has quite a few facets we are considering, but the City Auditor & City Attorney are already communicating about how to make something like you suggested work in the future.

When we have some more details we will share them - thank you for your suggestion and participation.

Definitely a good idea.  Many businesses have a hotline.  Even if it isn't used much it could serve as a deterrent if it makes someone think 'if I do this someone could report me...'

Sure, transparency is a positive thing. In addition I would add a section that deals with both waste of funds and ideas to make things more effective. Ideas are always a good thing.

Thanks, everybody for their interest.

The City Auditor’s office is developing a proposal on this topic to take to the audit subcommittee and the city council within the next fiscal year.

In the meantime, anyone with specific concerns or cost-saving, efficiency ideas can email them to audit@scottsdaleaz.gov.

Where does this stand ? It's been 8 months since last update. Meanwhile a few Scottsdale employees are taking advantage of the system.
This hotline or reporting feature should include cost saving measures/ideas and remain anonymous.

John, establishing the fraud, waste and abuse hotline is part of the city auditor's plan for the next fiscal year. Initial discussion with the city council audit subcommittee occurred yesterday (March 17), and a resolution should happen by the June 30 meeting.

In the meantime, you can always submit reports to audit@scottsdaleaz.gov

The Scottsdale City Auditor announced this week a new "Integrity Line" so the public, city employees, contractors or others can anonymously report suspected fraud, waste or misuse of city resources.

People can make reports by calling 480-312-8348, emailing audit@scottsdaleaz.gov, or filling out a form at https://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/departments/City_Auditor/integrityform

Thank you to everyone interested in this topic.
