Research Compliance Committee

In recent years, the regulatory burdens associated with the conduct of sponsored research have grown significantly, making it increasingly important to coordinate research compliance efforts where possible to ensure that USC continues to act as a responsible steward of federal and private research support.  Key stakeholders involved with research compliance participate in a Research Compliance Committee, which meets quarterly.  Daniel Shapiro, from the Office of Compliance, chairs the committee.

The charge of this committee is to:

  • Identify and prioritize research compliance risks at USC.
  • As appropriate, recommend and/or implement solutions to address potential or actual research risks.
  • Develop tools and other resources to assist the research community in learning and complying with the rules and principles related to the conduct and administration of research.
  • Advise on processes/systems to monitor research compliance on an ongoing basis, nationally and within USC.
  • Continue to improve coordination between administrative units charged with research compliance-related responsibilities.
