Global Operations Committee: About Us
The Global Operations Committee (GOC) was appointed in late 2011 by Patrick Norton and Jeff Cason.
The GOC is charged with detailing our global footprint, including how we are organized (in-country legal status), and confirming our compliance with local laws and regulations. The Committee is tasked with documentation, and as necessary establishing, internal accounting, business processes, and control measures necessary for operations outside of the U.S.
A key component of the GOC’s work involves supporting managers and other project leaders from the point at which they begin investigating the viability of establishing a new program or project, through the approval process, implementation, and then on-going operations or (for projects or one-time programs) through the wind-down phase. This assistance can come in the form of: on-line resources, in-person or phone advice sessions on topics such as entity registration, employment options, banking issues, budgeting, immigration, contracting, risk/safety, export controls, etc. Various committee members are able to assist with research into start-up or operational issues, and can procure customized whitepapers on countries of interest, and (on an as-needed basis) coordinate the sourcing of expert external advice or support services. Managers and project leaders are encouraged to reach out to individual committee members or email the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Global Operations Committee is comprised of representatives from Human Resources, Finance, Risk, Treasury, Sponsored Research, International Programs, and Immigration. Patrick Norton and Jeff Cason serve as the Executive Committee and provide overall leadership and direction to the group.
