2016 Emory University Compliance Program Manual

The number of laws, regulations and policies that impact the multitude of activities carried out at Emory University is enormous, and keeping up with these requirements can be challenging.  Although the Office of Compliance and the Internal Audit Division are separate units with distinct operational charges, both units recognize that a strong compliance program demonstrates the commitment of the University and its employees not only to the laws that govern our activities, but also to the ethical principles at the core of the University as an institute of higher education, research, and health care.  Accordingly, the Office of Compliance and the Internal Audit Division have collaborated on creation of the Emory University Compliance Program Manual as a means of providing faculty and staff members with an overview of the University’s compliance program.  
 
This publication provides faculty and staff members with information about some of the major policies and regulatory requirements that govern employee activities and introduces employees to the strong ethical principles that form the basis for Emory’s mission and work.  We hope this publication will serve both as a useful overview for new employees, and a handy reference guide for current faculty and staff.   
 
The manual is available here
