Compliance Office


Compliance Office

The Compliance Office's mission is to create a culture of excellence, integrity, accountability, and ethical behavior by ensuring compliance through standards, procedures, policies, internal controls, and training. Jefferson County Commission (JCC) is proud of our recent compliance performance and the positive reputation for compliance that exists with our employees and community.

Formerly the Equity and Inclusion Division of Human Resources, the Compliance Office is now an independent department reporting directly to the County Manager. As a newly implemented office, we ask that all employees engage the Compliance Office and partner with us as we implement efforts to produce operational excellence throughout our organization.

Passion for Results
How We Serve the Organization

The Compliance Office is responsible for the following actions within the organization.

  • Establish and Implement Policies: Develop and ensure an annual review of established Administration Orders, rules, and procedures to guide compliance practices.
  • Compliance Program Administration: Ensure dedicated leadership to oversee and advocate for organizational compliance initiatives.
  • Train and Educate: Conduct regular training sessions and educational programs to ensure all staff are informed about compliance requirements and their roles in maintaining standards.
  • Facilitate Communication and Reporting: Encourage open communication regarding compliance matters and provide secure channels for reporting potential issues.
  • Monitor for Business Process Optimization: Perform ongoing monitoring and regular reviews to assess compliance adherence and identify areas for improvement.

  • Respond and Rectify: Swiftly address any compliance issues detected and implement corrective actions to prevent future occurrences.

A Team Effort
