The Department of Immigration and Citizenship

THE CHALLENGE

In 2013, the senior leadership of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) engaged Noetic to undertake a number of reviews into various strategic frameworks, including the Status Resolution Capability Framework and the Investment Management Framework. As part of this boarder set of reviews Noetic was tasked to conduct a health check of the DIAC Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Framework.

WHAT NOETIC DID

THE BENEFIT

Noetic delivered a report outlining areas of weakness in DIAC’s risk framework and identified specific areas for improvement. The areas for improvement included development of materiality criteria, a move to identify and focus more on risk controls, and greater clarity in reporting to the Executive Committee. Noetic recommended these findings could readily be addressed within a relatively short timeframe, with initial changes occurring over 3-4 months, and organisation-wide implementation taking about 18 months in total. Noetic provided an indicative road map and timeline for how this might be achieved in the report.
