Working with McGregor & Associates allowed our staff to come together and learn how to communicate with each other about risk management issues… it was an outstanding team-building and/or learning environment for everyone. Our entire professional staff participated in the process and was divided into “working committees” to facilitate the collection of materials and develop common, department-wide, policies and risk management procedures.

As a result of working with McGregor & Associates, our Department has a well defined, and operational, Risk Management Manual, that incorporates its entire set of programs and services…. this is an active and fluid document that will continue to be updated and reviewed on a regular basis. In addition, as a result of this process, the department has established a department-wide Risk Management Committee that is responsible to monitor and manage the various risk-related issues associated with our programs and services. This committee will meet on a regular basis, communicate with the university’s Risk Management Services and will continue to oversee the management of our organization’s risk related needs.
