The main aims of the OCEG GRC Glossary are to:
- provide an open and interdisciplinary source of plain-language definitions related to principled performance and GRC which includes the governance, assurance and management of performance, risk and compliance
- increase clarity and communication between professionals that work in areas related to GRC activities;
- use and promote existing authoritative definitions where possible, being careful to highlight or reconcile areas where inconsistencies between disciplines exist; and
- be a catalyst for the ongoing and future development of more consistent and open source standards related to principled performance and GRC activities.
