Quality Assurance Committees

UW Quality and Compliance Oversight and Advisory Committee

The Quality and Compliance Oversight and Advisory Committee (QCOAC) is a cross-campus committee created to support the UW-Madison HRPP by:

  • Acting as a steering committee for the QCOC to help identify institutional priorities for HRPP quality, effectiveness, efficiency and outreach
  • Serving in an advisory capacity to institutional officials and other entities when events or data suggest the need for changes in HRPP structure, policy, or resources in order to achieve a high quality, effective, efficient HRPP or to achieve outreach goals
  • Working with institutional leadership to identify appropriate resource allocation for the campus-wide HRPP

The QCOAC is chaired by the Institutional Official for the protection of human subjects. Other members include those in leadership positions across the campus-wide HRPP, such as the Associate Deans for Research from the major research colleges and schools, and UW individual(s) with expertise in program evaluation. The committee also includes representatives from the QCOC.
