  • Provide GCC guidance for business activities that involve GCC risks.
  • Enable compliant business growth by ensuring assigned company stakeholders partner with the Law Department and GCC/HCC peers to help the business navigate through risks associated with US Government sales or R&D contracts; crafting controls into business processes to mitigate risks; and ensuring the implementation of these controls.
  • Act as a consultant, reviewer and approver as needed, for business activities that involve GCC implications to facilitate compliant growth, support ethical decision-making, and ensure compliance with policies, procedures and applicable laws.
  • Partner with assigned company leadership to ensure that the GCC Program effectively prevents and/or detects violations of law, regulations and policies by supporting Senior Leadership, Compliance Committee(s) and other appropriate governance groups which are responsible for ensuring implementation of an effective compliance program.

  • The GCCO will also be a member of the CSM Leadership Team which enables a close connection with leaders of the CSM and SCG organizations and provide immediate visibility and input to direction, decisions, processes, and any issues resulting in an overall high level of quality and risk mitigation in the contracting environment. Given the CSM role as a shared service for pharmaceutical, medical device, and consumer business in both government and commercial contracting, this position has outstanding exposure to the breadth of J&J businesses and can positively impact both government and commercial contract quality. Although close collaboration with the CSMLT (and other business leaders) is intended, it is also expected that this individual will operate with appropriate independence as indicated by the direct reporting relationship to a JJHCS Management Board and Deliver Leadership Team member.
