Engaging in ethical business practices is a commitment shared by URS employees throughout our offices and project sites around the world. Our positive reputation relies upon our employees taking personal responsibility for operating within the standards of ethical conduct in the countries in which we do business. The long-term success and sustainability of our company, we believe, depend upon work obtained and produced in an ethical and transparent manner.

Our focus on ethics and compliance begins with active leadership from our executives and is reinforced at every level across our operations and regions. Ethical business practices are embedded in our culture and our business strategy.

Through agreeing to adhere to our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, as well as periodic training and building awareness, URS employees know that:

  • Safeguarding our professional and ethical behavior is more important than profiting from compromising URS’ principles or bending the law;
  • Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics serves as the foundation for how we conduct business;
  • We are subject to the laws and regulations that apply in each of the countries where we conduct business.

Our ethics and compliance processes and procedures are designed to prevent, identify, and resolve any potential ethical concerns, and include training and communications, monitoring and auditing, enforcement and discipline, and response and prevention. Our processes are supported by a team of professionals, led by URS’ Compliance Officer and General Counsel.

The URS Ethics Hotline is available to employees, customers, subcontractors, and vendors to report potential violations of our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics standards. URS follows up on all reports to the extent possible and strives to address concerns fairly and in a timely manner. Our non-retaliation policy protects employees who report concerns in good faith.

You may contact the Ethics Hotline either by sending an email to ethics.hotline@urs.com or by dialing 1.866.462.4224 (toll-free in the United States and Canada).
