Dear Linda,

Enclosed is the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee’s (USOPC) report on the 2019 Compliance
Checklist for USA Badminton (USAB). We want to express our appreciation for the time you and your staff
spent completing the Checklist and providing documents during the review.

USAB was compliant as it specifically relates to the compliance checklist report for the questions outlined
below in the following areas: governance/managerial; financial capability; due process and athlete
representation; athlete safety; and anti-doping. There were no deficiencies found and USAB is fully compliant
with the 2019 Compliance Checklist. There is also an additional observation in the report that when
implemented, would improve the grievance procedures policy.

The report will be presented to the USOPC Athlete and NGB Engagement Committee and be made available
on We hope you found the review process to be helpful. If you have any suggestions, please
do not hesitate to share them with us.
