Governance Services for Government Departments

At Governance Ireland we are conscious of the evolving nature of the governance landscape within Government Departments and the fact that Departments are not uniform in their structure, size or range of functions.  We offer our clients a bespoke service, jointly designed and specifically addressing their individual needs.  The following is an illustrative list of services which can assist Government Departments towards  the common standard:-

  • Diagnostic Consultation with Senior Management Team. On our reading of primary documentation and discussion with organisation leadership, we will provide an initial diagnosis of needs in the context of the core Governance Framework  and how they might best be addressed.
  • Management Team Training/Mentoring. We offer a range of courses including Induction, Governance Structures, Specific Codes (e.g. Public Bodies, Sectoral Codes, CVC etc), Performance Oversight Processes,  Chairing Skills, Risk Management and Compliance.
  • Governance Stewardship. As accredited governance and compliance assessors we can provide expert guidance and support. Specific offerings include Governance Review, Compliance Check and SWiFT 3000 accreditation.
  • Risk Management and Compliance. We can help to design and improve Business Risk and Compliance Framework, including Risk Identification, Assessment and Treatment, develop Compliance Programmes and Processes and related training programmes.
