Governance, Risk and Compliance
Welcome to the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Hub. We are a support resource to help staff within the Medical Sciences Division and further afield to navigate the increasing GRC activity requirements across the Division. Information, forms, templates and networks can all be found on our SharePoint hub (requires Oxford single sign-on).
All staff have a degree of GRC requirement within their role. We are here to help people understand what is required of them and how to go about fulfilling those requirements, both by subject area and by role.
GRC is a huge topic that covers many areas: assurance, business continuity, financial control, audit, people, regulations, committees, information and data, and health and safety (to name just some). We have a wealth of resources relating to these areas on our hub, as well as networks and experts in residence who can point you in the right direction.
The individual elements of governance, risk and compliance are tightly linked to each other. When they are all working together they create an atmosphere in which an organisation can flourish: open governance increases engagement and understanding, which increases opportunity and lowers risk impact, which in turn increases confidence in assurance and compliance activity – leading to something of a virtuous circle.

Eliminating risk is unavoidable, but managing it effectively is key to lowering impact and realising opportunities.
There are a variety of regulations, internal and external, that must be complied with. Find out more.
