Institute of Risk Management South Africa (IRMSA)

Institute of Risk Management South Africa (IRMSA)

As the transition for CGF’s professional GRC services has evolved to include risk and compliance services within its repertoire, the close association between the governance, risk and compliance (‘GRC’) disciplines necessitated the need for CGF and the Institute of Risk Management South Africa (‘IRMSA’) to form a strategic alliance.  Through this strategic alliance, CGF and IRMSA foresee sharing information -- through their joint knowledge and experience -- with their respective constituencies that allows them to take a more proactive (and informed) approach toward risk management.

IRMSA is the leading source of information and networking opportunities within the Risk Management industry, with members from a wide range of corporations both from the private and public sector.  IRMSA is a non-profit organisation and represents individuals and companies committed to the enhancement of the Risk Management discipline.

IRMSA has been recognised by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) as the Professional Body for Risk Management in South Africa, and is therefore the institute of choice for risk professionals and practitioners in Southern Africa, dedicated to the advancement of the risk management profession and accreditation, through research, promotion, education, upliftment, training, guidance and strong relationships with other Institutes or Associations.

South African Quality Institute (SAQI)

South African Quality Institute (SAQI)

CGF has had a long standing business relationship with SAQI and its board and to whom we are proudly associated.  At SAQI they believe the Quality approach is the foundation for South Africa’s economic success and a better quality of life for all our people.  Their priority is to promote Quality awareness in all South Africans and to influence the general public to expect quality in products and services and to spontaneously include quality in all their activities.

The word quality brings to mind terms such as inspection, process control, auditing, standards and ISO 9000. While quality indeed includes these principles, it also includes, for example, management systems and continuous improvement, customer satisfaction and market focus, teamwork and the well-being of employees.

These principles are all critical to success, whether in health care, education, manufacturing, the service industry or the public sector. Quality is the critical success factor in competitiveness, especially when doing business internationally. So where do South African companies look for direction in establishing and maintaining Quality principles in their organisations? Is there an umbrella body that co-ordinates the national quality effort under one roof? The answer is "yes": the South African Quality Institute (SAQI).
