Risk Management and Administrative Compliance (RMAC)

Our mission is to effectively identify, assess, and rank  the University's strategic, financial, operational, and compliance risks in support of the University's goals and objectives.  We develop policies and practices geared to protect University assets, limit liability, and ensure continuity of University functions, all in response to a wide range of loss exposures that are associated with a world-class research institution.

Provided with good data about campus-wide risks, senior management is better positioned to achieve organizational objectives by:

  • Understanding the risks the University faces,
  • Declining or accepting those risks based on knowledge and analysis, and
  • Making decisions to ensure risks are adequately controlled and monitored.

Risk...

...is the possibility that an event will occur and adversely affect the achievement of objectives.  Acceptable risk level is based on a balanced view of all the risks (portfolio) in the University's operating environment. 

Compliance...

The State University of New York is committed to operating with integrity and in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies.

RMAC houses the University's Privacy and Information Security Offices, whose mission is to serve as a central resource for issues of privacy, confidentiality, and information security and to provide leadership in the development of programs and practices to meet relevant requirements and standards.
