The MetricStream solution enables a systematic, integrated, and automated approach to the company’s complete audit lifecycle

Shankar Bhaskaran MetricStream, a market leader  in enterprise Governance, Risk,  and Compliance (GRC) solutions,  announced that the  government-owned Tanzania  Petroleum Development  Corporation (TPDC) has gone  live with MetricStream’s    solution for risk-based audit  management. Built on an  integrated GRC platform, the  solution consolidates internal  audit activities in a single  framework to drive greater  transparency and efficiency,  while also streamlining end-to-end audit workflows, and strengthening visibility into risks.

Tanzania is quickly becoming one of the largest global exporters of natural gas. TPDC is a Tanzanian State corporation through which the Ministry of Energy and Minerals implements its petroleum exploration and development policies. The organization plays a crucial role in monitoring oil and gas exploration and production, researching and developing the industry, and advising the government on petroleum-related issues.

“We are delighted to help TPDC simplify and strengthen its audit capabilities,” said Shankar Bhaskaran, Vice President & General Manager of International Business Operations at MetricStream. “MetricStream has a strong presence in the Middle East, particularly among major oil and gas companies, and is now actively involved in the rapidly growing African market.”

“At TPDC, we look to integrate risk management into our day-to-day activities at every organizational level, while also ensuring proper oversight of risks,” said Charles Nyangi, Acting Director of Internal Audit at TPDC. “The MetricStream solution scales across the enterprise, and helps us improve the efficiency of our audit program, while facilitating greater information-sharing and coordination across these activities, which comprise internal and joint ventures (external) audits.”

To balance the potential opportunities with the associated risks, TPDC is strengthening its internal audit processes, supported by the MetricStream solution. The solution provides rich, end-to-end functionalities for simplifying, accelerating, and enhancing the entire audit lifecycle. It helps consolidate risks from across the enterprise, and map them to their corresponding controls so that the organization can quickly identify high-risk areas, and prioritize audit plans and resources accordingly.
