Ethics & Compliance Program
The Board of Regents (Board) of the University System of Georgia (USG) has established a System-level Ethics & Compliance 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:
- Promote the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct within the University System of Georgia and to ensure compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies.
- Coordinate and support USG institutional ethics and compliance functions.
- Conduct compliance investigations and reviews as needed to discharge an effective compliance program.
The USG Ethics & Compliance Program is part of the Office of Organizational Effectiveness, which reports to the Executive Vice Chancellor for Administration and to the Board of Regents Committee on Internal Audit, Risk, and Compliance. The authority to manage the Ethics & Compliance Program is specified in our Charter as approved by the Board of Regents.
