Birmingham Audit - Risk Management

Risk Management Policy Statement

The Council's Risk Management Policy Statement outlines the Council's approach to Risk Management. The Policy supports the Council's long-term vision for Birmingham. The documents are reviewed each year and the updates are approved by the Audit Committee.

Effective Risk Management helps to achieve the strategic outcomes in the Council Plan by anticipating and assessing those risks that could prevent the delivery of the outcomes.

Risk Management Strategy

The Council's Risk Management Strategy gives an overview of how risk management is applied and the concepts underpinning risk management. Included within the Strategy are roles and responsibilities and reporting lines, actions required by a range of members and officers, and the key milestones.

Risk Management Methodology

The Council's Risk Management Policy Statement and Strategy are companion documents to the Risk Management Methodology, which describes the method to be used for risk management in the Council. There are five elements in the Risk Management Methodology. These are:

  • Risk / opportunity identification
  • Risk / opportunity analysis
  • Risk / opportunity prioritisation
  • Management of risks / opportunities
  • Monitoring of progress
