governance, risk and compliance

Ensuring that your organisation is effectively governed and that risk and compliance is optimised to meet your strategic outcomes.

 

GOVERNANCE

"Governance is the set of responsibilities and practices, policies and procedures, exercised by an agency’s executive, to provide strategic direction, ensure objectives are achieved, manage risks and use resources responsibly and with accountability.” Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) definition of public sector governance.

We work with our clients to design, implement and review governance arrangements to strengthen the robust nature and agility of decision making to deliver upon the organisation strategic objectives.

 

 

RISK MANAGEMENT

We work with our clients to support the design and implementation of risk management processes.  We focus on designing risk management processes that achieve the optimal balance between risk and control – managing risk to an acceptable level, not simply adding additional unnecessary levels of controls.

Our experience across organisations and sectors allows us to bring contemporary thinking to each client and offer insights that we can best tailor to each individual client’s circumstances. Our risk management services cut through confusing, confused, process heavy risk management systems and focus in on core consideration of: likelihood and consequence.

 

COMPLIANCE

We understand the need to comply with legislation, regulation and internal policy. We also understand that navigating these requirements can be complicated and at times confusing. We have operated within complex compliance systems and have experienced the two speed nature of the fast evolving operational environment and slow moving legislation, regulation and policy. We are adept at getting to the heart of published requirements and designing a compliance approach that is appropriate efficient and risk managed.

 

 

SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

We understand that one workplace injury or fatality is one too many no matter the circumstances. We also understand that our clients have operational and commercial pressures that drive a need for optimal safety management without imposing ‘over compliant’ process and procedures that unnecessarily impact the bottom line. We work with you to strike the right balance between safety and efficiency giving you confidence that the safety risks within your unique operating environment are managed, and that you are operating as efficiently as possible within the legislative and regulatory constraints. We believe that safety management and operational optimisation are mutually inclusive and best managed in harmony. In a mature and integrated system, positive outcomes in one, benefit the other. We take pride in creating a cooperative environment between safety and operations that leads to optimally safe, productive and profitable organisations.

 

 

AIRWORTHINESS

We have a solid foundation in Continuing Airworthiness Management built on years of experience in Part 145 Maintenance Management, Part M Continuing Airworthiness and interaction with Part 21 Design Organisations. We complement our Responsible Manager (RM) and Continuing Airworthiness Manager (CAM) expertise with significant regulatory change experience, specifically relating to the Australian Defence Force transition to the Defence Aviation Safety Regulations. We bring deep understanding of the symbiotic nature of airworthiness assurance and operational priorities to deliver a safe and pragmatic approach to civil and military airworthiness. We have been in the shoes of the RM/CAM dealing with highly complex and challenging airworthiness issues with multiple competing priorities. We are passionate about supporting our clients to return to safe and efficient aviation operations during a crisis, and partnering to continuously improve airworthiness and operational outcomes over time.

 

 

ASSURANCE

We offer a range of services to provide our clients with Assurance.  These are tailored to client needs and can be broad or narrow, high level or extremely detailed depending upon the specific requirements.  We draw on a range of skills and expertise to ensure that the assurance activity is appropriately complemented with deep subject matter experience and provide value adding insights.
