Managing Risk in Government

Effective risk management in government is critical. Government departments and agencies are responsible for the UK’s physical, digital, infrastructure and energy security. From health to welfare, crime to transport, the processes by which central Government invests in and implements its decisions affect us all.

The UK Civil Service and agencies are facing significant challenges. With ongoing resource constraints, many responsibilities moved to central government, new delivery models and increasing demand for many services, departmental risk professionals are to covering an increasing amount of ground. In this environment, effective and joined-up risk management has an important role to play.

IRM has been working to raise awareness of the role of risk management in government, as well as raising standards of risk professionalism within it. We contribute submissions and responses to inquiries and consultations, and encourage the dissemination of operational and strategic best practice.
