Risk Governance Framework

BDO offers a variety of services to better understand Governance, Risk, and Control Frameworks and encourage best practises.

Establishing sound and reliable governance practices is integral for every organisation. As companies continue to expand their services, grow and evolve over time, it is imperative to always focus on efficiency in risk management, the development of an effective control environment and delivery of strategic goals to meet the expectations of both internal and external stakeholders.

The creation of comprehensive and supportive governance, risk and control frameworks should be a top priority for all organisations. However, the presence of strong governance can no longer be viewed as a reactive process. Instead, when faced with increasing uncertainty, organisations must take a proactive stance to manage risk and realize those opportunities that align with their stakeholder needs. Ultimately, implementing effective governance, risk and control frameworks will facilitate this process and it is an area where BDO can provide assistance. Organisations should implement governance, risk and control frameworks that address the following areas: 

  • structural or internal processes that have changed within the organisation;
  • increased risk/complexity that has emerged within the organisation’s sector;
  • failures within the organisation’s existing framework; and/or
  • a new/updated regulation or legislation that affects the organisation.
