In April 1998, the Board of Regents implemented a compliance program for UT System. The Action Plan to Enhance Institutional Compliance is the governing document that serves as the blueprint for the U. T. System compliance programs.


The UT System Administration Compliance Program is directed by an Executive Compliance Committee and Compliance Working Group. The Executive Compliance Committee is composed of seven high-ranking UT System officials. The Compliance Working Group is composed of 14 employees who represent certain high-risk compliance areas within System Administration. The roles of each committee and membership responsibilties are described in the committees' charter.


The principal functions of the System Administration Compliance Program are to perform a risk assessment of System Administration's compliance issues, monitor the implementation of System Administration's compliance plan, communicate instances of noncompliance, follow-up on compliance findings to ensure that appropriate corrective action has been taken, and continuously assess the effectiveness of compliance activities, including the effectiveness of the program itself.

The Standards of Conduct Guide contains information, references, and questions and answers regarding appropriate workplace conduct to help ensure that our work is conducted in an ethical and legal manner.

Compliance training is offered to System Administration employees biennially. A compliance hotline, intended to provide a mechanism for reporting compliance violations, is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The toll-free phone number is 1-877-217-2426.
