USG Compliance & Ethics Program
The Board of Regents (Board) of the University System of Georgia (USG) has established a System-level Compliance and Ethics Program (Program). The Program is intended to assist the Board, the Chancellor, and institution management in the discharge of their compliance oversight responsibilities.
The primary functions of the Program are to:
- Manage a University System Office (USO) compliance function to manage USO-specific compliance risks.
- Advise the Board, the Chancellor, and institution management on significant campus or USO compliance risks and provide action steps to mitigate significant compliance risks.
- Coordinate and support USG institutional compliance functions.
- Conduct compliance investigations and reviews as needed to discharge an effective compliance program.
The USG Compliance and Ethics Program is part of the Office of Internal Audit and Compliance which reports to the Chancellor and to the Board of Regents Committee on Internal Audit, Risk, and Compliance. OIAC’s authority to manage the Compliance and Ethics Program is specified in our Charter as approved by the Board of Regents.
