What is Compliance Mapping?

Compliance Mapping is the process of crosswalking one Citation’s Mandates to another Citation’s Mandates. An older methodology matches Citation to Citation in a matrix, the newer methodology matches each Citation to a Common Control in a star pattern.

The process of compliance mapping consists of

  • cataloging the Authority Document in question,
  • extracting its pertinent Citations and Mandates,
  • tagging the terms in those Mandates,
  • selecting each tagged term’s in-context definition,
  • mapping that tagged Mandate to a Common Control, and
  • matching the Common Control to corresponding Audit Questions.
