UNM Compliance Office - Main Campus

Welcome to the homepage of the University of New Mexico Main Campus Compliance Office.

The University of New Mexico is committed to the highest standards of integrity, controls, risk management and ethics in pursuit of its mission of engaging students, faculty and staff in its comprehensive educational, research and service programs.

Compliance Program Governance and Structure

The Main Campus Compliance Program is administered by the Chief Compliance Officer. To guarantee independence, the Chief Compliance Officer reports functionally to the UNM Board of Regents and administratively to the President. This dual reporting requirement allows the Compliance Program to be free from interference and empowered to obtain the information needed to perform the work.

Compliance Committees

The Compliance Program structure includes an oversight committee. The Institutional Compliance Committee provides university-wide support for the Main Campus Compliance Program. Compliance Partners, including high-level personnel from different departments and offices across the campus are represented on the Committee. Administrative partners on the Committee have responsibility and expertise in the major compliance areas, including athletics, human resources, research, student affairs, facilities and finance. The Committee meets quarterly and is chaired by the Chief Compliance Officer.
