ED’s Increased Scrutiny of College Contracts with Online Program Managers


On May 5, 2022, the U.S. Government Accountability Office released a long awaited report scrutinizing the U.S. Department of Education’s oversight of relationships between institutions of higher education and Online Program Managers. The Report, titled Education Needs to Strengthen Its Approach to Monitoring Colleges' Arrangements with Online Program Managers, focuses on ED’s role in ensuring institutional compliance with the federal ban on incentive compensation. Thompson Coburn’s Higher Education practice invites you to join us for webinar on May 17, 2022, during which we will discuss in further detail the state of the incentive compensation ban and its application to OPM arrangements, as well as language introduced by ED during its recent negotiated rulemaking that would impact OPM relationships.
