Corporate Governance 

As a not-for-profit organisation under the purview of the Charities Act, SIM enforces stringent corporate governance guidelines to ensure that we are transparent and are compliant with legal regulatory requirements.

SIM adopts an enterprise-wide, systematic and integrated approach to risk management in identifying key risks and ensuring appropriate risk mitigation measures are in place, reviewed and monitored. 

Assuming the overall governance of SIM is the Board of Directors. Comprising independent elected members, the Board is responsible for the strategic direction of SIM, provides governance oversight on all financial, remuneration, risk and audit matters, and closely monitors compliance with control measures.

The Internal Audit Division, as part of SIM's corporate governance framework, supports the Board to oversee SIM’s functions in whistle-blowing, internal and external audits.

As part of good corporate governance, SIM has in place the Whistle-Blowing Policy and Conflict of Interest best practices. Under the latter, Board members or staff who have personal interests in business transactions or contracts that SIM may enter into or have vested interest in any organisation that SIM has dealings with, are required to declare such conflicts of interest to the Board or senior management immediately, and to abstain from any discussion or decision making on the matter of interest.

The Whistle-Blowing Policy extends the notion of corporate governance to all staff and vendors, allowing them to take responsibility in playing their part to help SIM achieve a greater level of public confidence in our corporate governance.
