You are a Staff Member…
Greater awareness can ultimately empower you to better understand how and when compliance intersects with your day-to-day work at the University. Every staff member has different compliance obligations depending on his or her role and the precise nature of his or her work. As a staff member, you understand your work best; and are the best person to determine whether you are in compliance. Given the diversity of NC State’s compliance activities, and differing roles that staff members perform, no-one expects every staff member to understand or know how to solve every compliance issue. But with improved awareness, you can be better prepared to spot issues and then enlist help from resources such as your manager or supervisor; the University Compliance & Integrity Manager; the Office of General Counsel; an HR representative; or other university services.
