Responsive and efficient

Griffin strives for:

  • A management structure that enables responsive, flexible approaches and encourages networking and knowledge building through supporting and engaging in professional forums, providing an environment for thinking, learning and analysis.
  • A small and efficient team with low overheads and minimal bureaucracy enabling Griffin to respond in a timely fashion. Griffin is well known for producing high quality products in short timeframes – a low input/high output provider.
  • Formal risk management practices contributing to our successful delivery of services. These include implementing a risk management matrix for each major project and building risk management into daily business practice.

Needs driven

Products are provided to clients in a range of formats, depending on needs and target audience. Griffin has in recent years produced:

  • Web-based products (e.g. An interactive report for the National Land and Water Resources Audit, 2008)
  • Formal launched publications (e.g. Aid and the Environment: Building Resilience, Sustaining Growth; an environment strategy for the Australian Aid Program, 2007)
  • Reports to government (e.g. Murray Darling Basin Authority, Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts, Department of Climate Change)
  • Fact sheets (e.g. National Land and Water Resources Audit, 2008)
  • Conference presentations (e.g. International Rivers Symposium, 2007)
  • Peer reviews (e.g. International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative; Pacific Lands Program, 2009)
  • As well as briefings to governments and Ministers

Financially responsible

Griffin’s contract and financial management systems are streamlined to be as efficient and transparent as possible. We have never had a contractual or financial dispute or claim.

Griffin engages the accounting firm HLB Mann Judd to annually audit the company accounts. Griffin is a completely independent private company. There are no financial links to other organisations except in the case of agreed joint ventures.
