An effective assurance framework enables well-run organisations to identify and manage risks, make informed decisions, improve their internal systems and processes, and ultimately enhance their service delivery options.
One of Centium’s key differentiators is our approach to risk and assurance projects, including routine and complex reviews. We use proven methodologies and always consider our client’s context, geographic and regional issues, operating model, objectives and challenges.
Centium offers an independent perspective of governance, risk and compliance systems to ensure that they are achieving their objectives. Importantly, we create strong partnerships with our clients to build capacity, improve organisational resilience and facilitate management ownership of outcomes.
We deliver risk management and assurance services across a range of operating models, including as in-house contractors, outsourced providers, co-sourced partners, and trusted advisors. We are pleased to work with our clients in a manner that best suits their business needs.
Centium partners with our clients to undertake internal audits that provide independent, objective assurance to improve organisational operations and outcomes. We do this by identifying and evaluating risks, controls, governance processes and opportunities for improvement.Our team members are experienced, professionally qualified and comply with the IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework and relevant sector requirements.
How we can help:
Risk management is frequently perceived as a defensive discipline – at Centium, we see risk management as a positive force that benefits all organisations. Properly executed and integrated into strategic and operational planning models, risk management can be used to prevent or mitigate negative events. Risk management is also important in enabling organisations to take better advantage of positive events and opportunities for growth.
