Institutional Compliance Program
The university’s Institutional Compliance Program ensures that FVSU properly administers National Science Foundation grants in accordance with the organization’s relevant policies and regulations.
The program was initiated under the University System of Georgia Compliance Charter approved by the Georgia Board of Regents on November 19, 2009. Afterward, FVSU signed a NSF Compliance Agreement, approved January 8, 2010, the NSF Institutional Compliance Program mandated the establishment of a NSF Compliance Office on campus, and the selection of a compliance officer.
Denise Eady was selected as the compliance officer to oversee the new NSF compliance office, which will be administered by FVSU’s Office of Sponsored Programs. She will report directly to President Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, and will ensure the implementation of the compliance agreement.
