In this Part I of a two part series recorded at this month’s European Compliance and Ethics Institute in Prague, Roy Snell discuss the DOJ’s Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs in the context of cavemen and Plato’s Analogy of the Cave. We review some of the new information and Roy discusses how it is a compilation of many differing strands of compliance thought over the past 20 year. We then discuss the HCCA-OIG Resource Guide on Measuring Compliance Program Effectiveness. As always we go off on tangents and dive deeply into issues relating to the the compliance profession.
