University Compliance Matrix

The SUU compliance matrix is a tool used to enhance compliance in a highly decentralized compliance environment. The matrix assigns responsibility for broad compliance areas to top level administrative units, and designates content experts to act as “compliance owners” and compliance partners for specific regulatory issues that guide the operations of the university.

At SUU fourteen areas have been identified, with several specific compliance requirements assigned within each topic area. The matrix is designed to connect personnel throughout the university in order to coordinate compliance activities. It provides users with points of contact for each of the more than 200 regulatory requirements for which SUU is responsible. It also helps ensure that the individuals that have responsibility for each compliance area have the working knowledge to identify risks that, if not addressed, could result in significant harm to SUU.

The SUU Compliance Oversight Committee and the Enterprise Risk Management Office maintain the matrix and work with administrators and compliance content experts throughout the SUU community to meet SUU’s compliance obligations.

The SUU Compliance Matrix is currently under construction.
