Compliance

Mason’s compliance functions are distributed in nature and are managed by first line of defense risk owners.  The ERM Council, administered by the Safety, Emergency, & Enterprise Risk Management department, provides compliance expertise and oversight from an enterprise perspective. The University Compliance Matrix is the centralized inventory of compliance areas, representative issues, accountable persons, and points of contact for university compliance risks.
