Corporate Compliance

It is the policy of Catholic Charities to comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. It is also Catholic Charities policy to adhere to the Code of Ethics adopted by the Corporate Board of Trustees.

Catholic Charities has always been and remains committed to its responsibility to conduct its affairs with integrity based on sound ethical and moral standards. Catholic Charities will hold our employees, independent practitioners, agents and vendors to these same standards.

Catholic Charities is committed to maintaining and measuring the effectiveness of its Compliance Plan through monitoring and auditing systems reasonably designed to detect noncompliance by its employees, independent practitioners, agents and vendors. We shall require the performance of regular, periodic compliance audits by internal and/or external auditors who have expertise in federal and state healthcare statutes, regulations, and healthcare program requirements.
