Did You Know?: NCAA Staff’s Six-Month Notifications during an Investigation

Although the investigations of USC and other institutions took several years to complete, NCAA legislation requires the enforcement staff to notify the affected institution of the status of the staff’s investigation once every six months. Specifically, NCAA Bylaw 32.5.1.1 directs the enforcement staff to “inform the involved institution of the general status of the inquiry within six months of the date after the chancellor or president receives the notice of inquiry from the enforcement staff”. Further, Bylaw 32.5.1.2 requires, “if the inquiry has not been processed to conclusion within one year of the date that the chancellor or president receives the notice of inquiry from the enforcement staff,” the staff to “review the status of the case with the Committee on Infractions”. The bylaw also instructs the Committee on Infractions to “determine whether further investigation is warranted, and its decision shall be forwarded to the involved institution in writing” and if “the investigation is continued, additional status reports shall be provided to the institution in writing at least every six months thereafter, until the matter is concluded”.
