Campaspe Shire Council, a Local Government in Australia, Selects MetricStream for Risk Management

Highlights MetricStream’s significant customer adoption in Australia, as well the increasing adoption of MetricStream solutions by government administrations

Shankar Bhaskaran (1) Campaspe Shire Council located in  Victoria, Australia, has selected  MetricStream, a market leader in  enterprise-wide Governance, Risk,  Compliance (GRC) and Quality  Management Solutions, to enable  the execution of their risk  management strategy. The Council  will use MetricStream Enterprise  Risk Management Solution to  streamline, automate, and  standardise their risk management  processes. In doing so, the solution  will help establish a pervasive risk  management culture across all levels of the organization – extending from the Council and management team, to employees, contractors, committees, and volunteers.

The solution will enable and support the entire process of risk assessments, risk treatment, risk reporting, decision-making, and planning processes. It will also be used to manage policies, investigate and remediate risk related issues, and monitor compliance with risk management standards and guidelines, particularly AS/NZS ISO 9001 and AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009. In addition, the solution will help manage all health and safety incidents through a comprehensive root cause analysis, risk rating, auditing of outcomes, and corrective action.

“Campaspe Shire Council is truly visionary in their approach to risk management, and we are delighted to enable and support them in this endeavor,” said Shankar Bhaskaran, Vice President & General Manager of International Business Operations at MetricStream. “GRC is becoming more pervasive – it is extending beyond corporate businesses, and into to city councils, government administrations, and public utilities. These organizations are realizing that in order to provide better services to their communities, and to protect the health and safety of their citizens, they need to better manage their risks, compliance, and governance obligations.”

“After solidifying our presence in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, we look forward to expanding our presence in Australia, and leveraging our extensive global experience to help organizations in this region as they seek to strengthen their Governance, Risk, and Compliance programs” added Shankar Bhaskaran.

“We chose MetricStream to provide an out of the box unified solution for Council to manage its risks, incidents, and policies. It is envisioned that MetricStream will be able to support us as Council’s risk and compliance requirements develop over time,” said Allan Cochrane, Resources General Manager at Campaspe Shire Council.

Campaspe Shire Council manages the planning, infrastructure, economic development, health, security, environmental, and cultural needs of their Shire, with a population of over 36,000. The Council has outlined a comprehensive “Risk Management Strategy – 2012 – 2016” which lays out the key steps to manage uncertainty and change in their activities, and to improve overall risk management systems and processes.
