Kacey Olson’s contributions during COVID-19 have been invaluable. She is the driving force behind ACES Risk Management’s NewsHub and its daily updates, which has more than 21,000 subscribers.
Olson’s team scans hundreds of sources to find news stories and compliance deadlines to include in the NewsHub. In response to the pandemic, Olson implemented new tracking features to the NewsHub. As ARMCO tracked all compliance news related to COVID-19, subscribers were able to search for all COVID-19 compliance updates and news within the “Disaster News” category. Additionally, Olson and her team created a new question set category within its ACES Intelligent Questionnaire, ACES IQ, functionality to house all temporary regulatory provisions issued by state and federal agencies and the government-sponsored enterprises in response to the COVID-19 national emergency declaration. The new category provided ACES users with a centralized repository inside ACES Audit Technology to ensure audits are conducted using the most up-to-date compliance standards.
