Update: March 19, 2020

Due to concerns related to COVID-19, the Commission for Law Enforcement Accreditation has decided to postpone the Office of Inspector General Services accreditation assessment until July/August. A new press release will be published once the new date has been determined.

On March 26, 2020, the Office of Inspector General Services (OIGS) will undergo an onsite inspection by a team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) to examine the OIGS’s compliance with specific requirements and prescribed standards as set forth by the CFA.

The assessment team will determine the FSU Office of Inspector General Services’ compliance with 46 applicable standards in order to retain their accredited status.

Accreditation assessments occur every three years and the full Commission makes the determination of reaccreditation status once the assessment is completed and reported.

As part of the assessment, university members and the general public are invited to offer comments to the assessment team. A copy of the standards manual is available through the FSU Office of Inspector General Services at (850) 644-6031.

For more information regarding the CFA or persons wishing to offer written comments about the FSU Office of Inspector General Services’ ability to meet the standards of accreditation, please write:

CFA, P.O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, FL 32302, or via email at flaaccreditation@fdle.state.fl.us
