Good governance, integrity (probity) and assurance practices are key attributes for the success of any business whether it be in the private, public sector or NFP. Strategic Risk Solutions has extensive experience in assisting organisations in effectively managing their organisational response to those critical aspects to enhance their internal processes and add value for their stakeholders. In addition to providing these services we also have the experience and team to develop, implement and deliver requisite training to organisations. We develop bespoke programs for any organisation and provide delivery of training to Boards, senior executive management and other staff in areas for example governance, assurance, integrity and probity and conflicts of interest.
With effective systems for direction and control of a business, Boards and directors are better placed to ensure effective governance practices operate for the benefit of business. Governance requirements can be and should be internally imposed in addition to external regulatory or statutory obligations. Strategic Risk Solutions can assist organisations in enhancing governance strategies with tools such as risk and compliance frameworks and policies, conflict management, procurement management, corruption and fraud prevention, tender management, internal audit requirements, whistleblowing and protected disclosures and associated policy development including the development and delivery of training.
Executive management and boards need to be confident that risk controls and processes are effective throughout an organisation to adequately perform their duties and manage the business in the best interests of shareholders and other stakeholders. With a risk based approach aligned to appropriate standards (including ISO31000) Strategic Risk Solutions can assist organisations in ensuring Boards and executive are provided with appropriate levels of assurance to ensure informed decision making can take place. Areas we can assist in include business continuity management, audit, quality control, DRP, OH&S (WHS) and control self assessment and training concerning assurance practices.
Probity or integrity is critical in all business not only to deliver the correct message internally but to ensure externally that an organisation meets the expectation and requirements of its stakeholders. We can assist with probity of tenders, internal code of conduct matters, procurement matters, integrity and internal reviews, contractual issues, confidentiality and secrecy requirements (for some government work) providing strategic advice and training across these and many other areas.
