Welcome to the Adams County transparency reporting portal! This web-based reporting
mechanism, along with the Adams County transparency hotline, is managed by CICN,
a third-party internal audit firm. All issues are treated as highly confidential,
with CICN performing independent investigations and informing select individuals
of the reported issues on a need to know basis.
To the extent permissible by law, your name, should you chose to provide it, will
not be disclosed to anyone outside CICN unless you provide us express written permission

as well as questionable ethical practices occurring within the Adams County Government.
