The Office of Compliance and Risk Management (OCRM) helps to ensure NYU has an effective Compliance and Risk Management Program by establishing standards and conducting education, training presentations, monitoring, auditing and investigation activities to prevent, detect, and resolve noncompliance. Our advisory services and resources are available to all departments.
To fulfill our mission, OCRM staff offers the University community a variety of services:

OCRM maintains the Policies and Guidelines website and assists with policy development and dissemination. NYU policies can be found on a searchable database located at www.nyu.edu/policies. OCRM, on behalf of the Office of the President, publish the Compliance Matters Newsletter. Issued three times a year to all Faculty, Staff and Administrators, Compliance Matters covers timely and informative compliance, legal and risk issues in higher education.

OCRM seeks to ensure that NYU's Compliance and Risk Program is effective. An important element of this is to Monitor the effectiveness of the implementation of compliance projects and identifying and correcting any deficiencies.
