Audit Agreements

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 2
Project Description The EPA Voluntary Audit Policy/Audit Agreement Program are based on the concept that self audit, disclosure, and correction of violations found with penalty avoidance possible is an effective way to bring the regulated community into compliance.

Based on the passed and current success of the College and University Initiative in encouraging participation in the Voluntary Audit Policy/Audit Agreements, EPA anticipated that hospitals in the Region would follow suit. Two academic institutions in the Region--one large and one small--have potentially avoided $600,000 and $80,000 in penalties by participating in the program. As of 2003, 10 weeks after the announcement of the initiative, 8 hospitals in the region have indicated interest in participating in the audit program.
