Comments and questions
• Are we funded to do this?
• We have no in house specialists to do this
• What is in it for us?
• Is this a legal requirement?
• Is it just another “badge” that will disappear,
after we have achieved it
• GFE Colleges can comply easily and they
have more resources, we don’t have as much
