Risk Management

Our approach to assessing and managing risk to support the strategic and operational decision making process.

We have a Risk Management Policy within which all staff have a role. Our Management Team has oversight and supervisory responsibility for managing all risks. Our Risk Register provides for a clear allocation of responsibilities for ownership and a management of risk as follows:

  • The Council undertakes an systematic evaluation of its corporate risk and maintains a risk register.
  • The Departments, comprising key operations and support functions, are responsible for execution of risk management.
  • The Management Team has oversight and supervisory responsibility, and is responsible for ensuring that the Risk Register is reviewed and updated regularly.
  • Audit Committee will evaluate and review and provide independent assurance on the effectiveness of our risk management.
