Equal Opportunity

Certifying Equal Opportunity Compliance on Grant Applications

Grant/contract applications may require certification that the contracting agency, which in this case is the University of South Florida, complies with federal and/or state anti-discrimination laws. The Office of Compliance and Ethics-Equal Opportunity Section ensures that USF complies with these laws. Evidence of this compliance may be found in the Equal Opportunity policies of USF and its Equal Opportunity Complaint Procedure/Process.

Grant/contract applications may require an affidavit or a questionnaire to be completed indicating that the University of South Florida is in compliance with state and/or federal anti-discrimination laws. The Office of Compliance and Ethics-Equal Opportunity Section will assist the department/college that must complete a compliance affidavit or questionnaire to ensure accurate information is reported regarding the questions that pertain to federal and/or state anti-discrimination laws.
