Updated General Compliance Briefing Requirement for all UC Employees

March 26, 2018

Dear Colleague,

The University of California has issued a General Compliance Briefing on University of California Ethical Values and Conduct. This briefing is designed to raise continued awareness of the University of California Statement of Ethical Values and Standards of Ethical Conduct, convey University employment obligations with respect to ethical and compliant behavior, and familiarize UC employees with important ethics and compliance information, issues and resources.

All UC employees must complete the General Compliance Briefing. Failure to complete the briefing by the due date will have a negative effect on performance appraisal ratings, and policy-covered staff will experience a mandatory reduction in merit pay.

The briefing will be due within 90 days and will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. A notification email will be sent from hrtraining@ucmerced.edu with individual due dates and detailed instructions on how to access the online course. The course can also be accessed via the UC Learning Center , under "Required Training."

For more information, visit the Compliance Office website .

Best regards,

Luanna Putney
Associate Chancellor and Campus Ethics and Compliance Officer
