Project Compliance is one of six enabling projects initiated following the ratification of the new University Strategy by Council in March 2022. Directed by the Head of Legal Services, and led by Organisational Development, Project Compliance will play a central role as the University embarks on its next strategic cycle through to 2030.
Project Compliance aims
- Create capacity for colleagues by reducing manual checks and processes which add little value to securing compliance.
- Reduce bottlenecks within Professional Services through training and empowerment of colleagues, to enable them to take the appropriate action and the right time.
- Free up our compliance experts to refocus on the higher risk matters, where they add the most value.
- Reduce ‘red tape’ around compliance, ensuring our processes are proportionate to the risks involved.
- Support the implementation of clear policies across a range of compliance areas.
Inform-Support-Assure-Lead (ISAL) is a new framework that was built to meet these aims.The project will work closely with the other Enabling Projects, especially Project Enable and Project Expectations.
