"Failure to monitor" in USC Athletic Department

USC will get sanctions on "failure to monitor" in both football and basketball. It was obivious with the football program that agents were allowed in the locker rooms.

Failure to monitor

 

This is essentially one step down from lack of institutional control. Often, being charged with a failure to monitor means that the NCAA believes adequate systems of compliance were in place at a member school, but that a school either didn’t pay proper attention to a limited area of its program, or didn’t pay proper attention for a limited period of time. Both individual programs and entire institutions can be charged with failure to monitor.

Here is the NCAA’s distinction between lack of institutional control and failure to monitor .

Lack of institutional control

 

This is one of the NCAA’s most complicated and ambiguous thresholds. Boiled into the simplest terms, institutional control comes down to two central questions: Were adequate institutional policies and procedures in place to facilitate a member school’s compliance with NCAA rules? And if the adequate policies and procedures were in place, were they being properly monitored and enforced by persons in “control” at the time of a violation?

In essence, institutional control comes down to what rules exist, who was making sure those rules weren’t being broken, and whether the persons in charge of monitoring those rules were doing their jobs. Whether a member school demonstrated a lack of institutional control can vary depending on the scope of failures which led to a violation, the types of rules violated, and the depth of knowledge and reaction of those in control at a member school.

Here are the NCAA’s principles on institutional control
