Risk, Compliance and Policy Services (RCPS) provides a range of institutional services. It operates the University’s risk management, compliance, public records, policy and rules (WAC) development activities, and acts as a consultant and service-provider to executive, division, college, and unit leadership who have substantive responsibility for managing risk and compliance. Along with Internal Audit, RCPS supports the Finance, Audit and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Committee of Western’s Board of Trustees in fulfilling its fiduciary responsibilities for the University.
Risk, Compliance and Policy Services (RCPS) provides a range of institutional services, including traditional and enterprise risk management, compliance management, internal controls, public records request, and policy and rules (WAC) development activities.
For RCPS, we envision harmonizing RCPS’s separate, but related, functions in order to improve its services and create value for the Western community.
