Welcome to the UTIA compliance website!|
At UTIA, we are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and public service. We are also committed to compliance with applicable laws and regulations, as shown by these policies established by the University to provide guidance to employees. Given the ever-increasing number and complexity of laws, regulations, and requirements in today’s environment, this website is designed with a goal of helping you – as a UTIA faculty or staff member – find the resources and guidance you need to fulfill your commitment to safety, ethical behavior, and compliance. This will allow you to concentrate on your excellent work with the least amount of frustration over the red tape. Please contact JaneBurns@utk.edu or 865-974-7375 for suggestions that can help us meet this goal.
Does your work (regardless of funding source) include any of the following? If so (or if you aren’t sure), check out the website for guidance and contact the appropriate compliance officer early to help you meet requirements and avoid delays in your work. We’re here to help.
