CompletionDecember 2015 (Completed)AbstractThe fall of major commercial players such as Enron and Worldcom has sparked the need of stringent regulations for the top management of big enterprises.Regulatory laws such as BASEL-II, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA have been proposed to minimize the risk of the re-occurrence of such corporate failures. Businesses have been required to redesign the way they operate for better accountability, traceability, and transparency. The implementation of compliance rules in process-oriented enterprises is a relatively new but complex phenomenon. There is little research in this area as much of current research has focused on the development of new process modeling techniques and tools. This research proposal is in the area of business process compliance management; the objective is to develop a comprehensive compliance requirements framework by evaluating and comparing different compliance approaches in the business process compliance domain. A case based survey method will be used to evaluate and verify the degree of compliance support in existing approaches. The proposed work will provide a close integration of three compliance perspectives namely: detective, corrective, and preventive compliance. The outcome of this doctoral work will allow enterprises to better respond to the changing regulatory demands for better transparency, and also to reap the commercial benefits of business process compliance improvements.Affiliations
