Managing Risks to Improve Public Services: Fifteenth Report of Session 2004-05; Report, Together with Formal Minutes and Oral Evidence
The Stationery Office, Jun 7, 2005 - Political Science - 37 pages
Any activity undertaken, whether by individuals, companies or government departments, involves a degree of risk. In recent years a great deal of effort has been put into improving risk management in government departments, and in November 2002 a two year initiative was launched by the Prime Minister to improve standards and practice across government. Following on from the NAO report on this issue (HCP 1078-I and II, session 2003-04; ISBN 0102930368) published in October 2004, the Committee's report makes a number of recommendations intended to help achieve further progress. In particular, it examines the challenges faced by departments in improving their risk management practices, and what can be to address these challenges.
