Compliance Statement

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s research compliance program provides the information, support, expertise, and systems of administration needed to meet the laws, rules, and policies governing research in the most efficient and effective way. An effective and comprehensive research compliance program ensures the responsible management of public funds, proper stewardship of university resources, and avoidance of adverse research events such as actual or perceived fraud or poor management.

Embry-Riddle’s research compliance program is proactive in circumventing risks that may arise in research, through responsiveness to the changing research environment and approaches, adherence to federal guidelines and requirements, mitigation of risks involved in the ethical conduct of research, and the belief in the responsible conduct of research.

The Office of Sponsored Research Administration (OSRA) is continuously involved in the following:

  • Upholding researchers to the highest standards and understanding the fiscal responsibilities of research
  • Designing standards and policies that effectively enable researchers to meet federal and institutional requirements
