I work for an organization and we will be using agile development to implement a large and complex information system. Is there Agile methodology that a scrum team can use that emphasizes "mandated information on system compliance requirements" during iterative Agile development cycles. Can a compliance component be integrated with an Agile approach. Are there Agile approaches or methodologies that incorporate compliance during which a scrum team can implement or performance certain activities to make sure all system compliance related requirements are addressed during a particular sprint. My goal is to ensure that ALL mandated system compliance requirements are addressed before each release – And that during each agile sprint, all mandated requirements that the system is required to be compliant with are addressed.

Might the Definition of Done be relevant, as described in the Scrum Guide?

My goal is to ensure that ALL mandated system compliance requirements are addressed before each release – And that during each agile sprint, all mandated requirements that the system is required to be compliant with are addressed.

Is the satisfaction of those requirements necessary for increments to be Done and immediately usable? If so, is the goal you have set yourself a commitment the Developers are prepared to meet?
