Conduct a Compliance Assessment

Conduct a Compliance Assessment 

A Compliance Assessment is used to to assess and document the current state of compliance oversight, management and related risks in a given compliance area.

The assessment will help identify strengths and opportunities within a specific compliance area's ecosystem, including oversight accountability, regulatory reporting requirements, compliance management, compliance risks, and key compliance gaps, along with laying the groundwork to develop a compliance gap closure plan and escalating compliance concerns as appropriate.

Consult with University Compliance and the lead Compliance Partner to plan, conduct and finalize your assessment.
