Management of risk in government: framework

A framework for boards and an example of what has worked in practice.



This framework provides a new model for risk management in government. It is intended as useful guidance for board members and risk practitioners.

Risk management is a part of everything we do. We all manage risk – often without realising it – every day. This framework was built over the course of 12 months with input from risk experts and board members across government.

The framework comprises:

  • a model for risk management in government
  • examples, tools, techniques and templates for risk management
