My Department has developed a formal risk management framework and maintains a register of risks in line with the recommendations of the 2002 Report of the Working Group on the Accountability of Secretaries General and Accounting Officers. The register of risks contains a description of each risk identified, an assessment of the likelihood of each risk occurring, the potential impact of such an occurrence and the actions required to minimise or eliminate such risks. The Department is currently undertaking a review and update of its risk management framework and risk register.
