Statement from Ulster County Executive Hein regarding Ulster County Government's Compliance Program
As Ulster County Executive, I am committed to ensuring that Ulster County Government operates in full compliance with Federal, State, local laws, rules and regulations, and serves the Ulster County community in accordance with the highest ethical and business standards. My goal is to create an environment that fights fraud, waste and abuse throughout County Government. To this end, I have established a "Compliance Program" to coordinate all of our efforts.
Ulster County Government's Compliance Program is overseen by a Compliance Officer. The Compliance Officer works with a Compliance Committee, which is composed of representatives from a range of County Government departments that have significant and regular responsibility for compliance outcomes. The Compliance Officer and the Compliance Committee are charged with ensuring that our Compliance Program is effective and achieves our goals.
Effective, efficient government requires the participation of all County Government employees, as well as the contractors and vendors we do business with. The Ulster County Government Compliance Program website includes a number of useful documents that will help you learn about our program and answer many of your compliance based questions. I believe that, by working together, we can continue to provide high quality public service and effective, efficient government, that best meets the needs of the people of Ulster County. Thank you.
