Department and Employee Compliance
Old Dominion University is keenly interested in maintaining an efficient organization that also fully complies with policies, procedures, laws and regulations. Because of the University's past efforts, the Commonwealth of Virginia has granted Old Dominion decentralized authority for many of its day-to-day operations. With this authority comes the responsibility to manage our affairs with the same diligence as if the Commonwealth were continuing its direct oversight. This means that the maintenance of internal controls over our operations and compliance with policies and procedures is more important now than ever before. In the long run, we are striving to create a more efficient University while promoting our compliance with applicable policies.
