Organisation Database

The GRC Exchange Organisation Database allows you to search for the key organisations working in the field of governance. Each summary identifies the organisation's objectives, an overview of its work in governance, the focus and country/regional coverage of its work, plus contact details. Links to resources held on the GRC Exchange website are also provided. For guidance on how to search the Organisation Database, click here.

The Organisations Database is a growing resource. If you have any suggestions for organisations to include within the database, please contact

How to search the database

The Organisation Database allows you to browse by organisation name, organisation type, focus, country/regional coverage, or by operating a free text search. The browseable lists have been created to allow quick and easy access to the relevant information.

Searching by organisation name
The browse by name link above will take you to an alphabetical list of all organisation records held within the database. Click on the appropriate organisation name and you will be taken to the full record.

Searching by organisation type
Look through the list of organisation types and click on the appropriate option. This will generate a list of all organisations classified by that type. Click on the appropriate organisation name and you will be taken to the full record.

Searching by focus
Look through the list of areas of focus and click on the appropriate option. This will generate a list of all organisations that are classified by that particular focus. Click on the appropriate organisation name and you will be taken to the full record.

Searching by country location
The browse by country/regional coverage link above will take you to a page that allows you to narrow your search by country, region or sub-region. By using the navigation links in the top orange bar of the page, click on the appropriate region. A list of sub-regions and countries will then be listed. Click on the appropriate option and you will be taken to a list of relevant organisations. To access a full record, click on the organisation name.

Using the free word search
Can't find what you're looking for? Use the free word search which will search all text contained within the organisation records. It can be used, for example, to find areas of focus not included within the browseable lists above, or expertise within a particular country location. Below are some tips on how to get the best results from the free word search:

Try and define what you are looking for as precisely as possible, bearing in mind that the more words you use, the more accurate your search will be.

Type either the word you want to find (e.g. service) or type a phrase (e.g. service provision). If more than two words are entered, records containing these words as a phrase will be retrieved.

To find records that contain any one of several words or phrases, enter OR between them. For example, to find all records on budgeting and also all records on PEM, enter "budgeting OR PEM".

To find all information on the relationship between accountability and accessibility, for example, enter "accountability AND accessibility". This will retrieve records where both those concepts are present.

To find plurals and word stems, use the truncation symbol, "*". For example, budget* will find records containing budgets, budgeting, e.t.c.
