Application Purpose

Software for the effective management of the disciplinary and grievance process in sport.

It is a legal requirement for all organisations to have effective disciplinary and grievance procedures in place. This is to protect both employers and employees should the need for disciplinary action, or a grievance, arise. This can be particularly challenging in sport which relies so much on volunteers, self-employed coaches and where there are grey areas around the employment status of elite athletes.


National governing bodies have codes of conduct that apply to all stakeholders. In the event of a breach in standards, and where correct protocols are not followed, it can be a costly mistake.


Globocol has designed a bespoke reporting software application for those who have a responsibility in this area. It ensures that all disciplinary and grievance matters are dealt with in an appropriate way.

Application Description

A bespoke platform for sport, to record and investigate breaches in standards through to appeal.

Globocol’s Disciplinary Application for Sport enables you to manage breaches in standards for employees, volunteers, self-employed workers, members and athletes. You can record and carry out a full investigation of breaches in standards.

At each step of the way there are automated workflows with programmed email notifications to prompt future actions and deadlines. If you wish, you can also generate anonymised data for a management dashboard for “at-a-glance” metrics.

You can attach documents and digital content (photos, video) to an incident report. Data can be exported to Excel for offline custom analysis and reports can be generated for meetings. The application provides a full audit trail and is a reference source for best practice and lessons learned.

We are committed to high standards of security, privacy and transparency. Globocol systems are fully GDPR compliant. We have also reviewed our suppliers for compliance with GDPR.

The application uses dual factor authentication at login and tracks relevant staff credentials. For UK clients, data is hosted at our nominated UK Data Centre with a UK helpdesk. For non-UK clients, if UK hosting and help desk services don’t meet specific national, legal or organisational requirements, Globocol will arrange a bespoke service to cater for that.

System data has multiple levels of back-up. You can also apply “soft-delete” functionality to recover unwanted deletions.

Placing all your reports and case documents in a single secure environment considerably reduces the risks to data privacy inherent with the use of multiple systems and devices, both online and offline.

Globocol is ISO 27001:2022 certified. This is the world's best-known standard for information security management systems (ISMS). Security specialists CRK Consulting Limited act as independent advisors on best practice to ensure our ongoing compliance with data protection legislation and to keep us alert about possible information security threats.
