First and foremost, Farm Credit Midsouth values integrity. To ensure that we maintain an operation and business relationships that reflect this, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethics. These standards are outlined in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, a law which members of the Farm Credit System are not required to follow. This is just another example of how Farm Credit Midsouth goes above and beyond for our customers.
One key requirement outlined in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is maintaining a confidential and anonymous reporting system, which Farm Credit Midsouth has done with the help of our business associate, NAVEX Global, Inc./EthicsPoint. This allows business partners, employees, vendors and customers to anonymously and confidentially report complaints regarding audit related matters, accounting, or internal accounting.
This system of accountability helps foster integrity and a strong code of ethics in our workplace. NAVEX Global, Inc./EthicsPoint has created a system that ensures those that file a report remain anonymous, unless that person chooses to identify themselves. These reports can be submitted by phone at 1.866.294.9349 or by internet.
