Risk Management in the Public Sector

lang_en 27. August 2012 - 28. August 2012, Courtyard by Marriott Berlin Mitte

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RISK-FREE AREA OF ACTIVITY
Whether internal or external, strategic, financial, operational or reputational – risks can significantly hinder the work of your authority. In the current economic and financial context the lack of an adequate approach to risk management is an enormous and real threat to the work of any public administration, since nowadays work efficiency and effectiveness in the public sector are more important than ever before. For that reason, it is of extreme importance that public authorities do not rely solely on their intuition in dealing with risks, but initiate professional formalised risk management as an integral and ongoing part of their general management process.

RISK MANAGEMENT IS NOT A CHOICE
Professionalised risk management forces organisations to deal with risks in the open and enhances communication with all involved stakeholders. The use of risk management tools and correctly balancing risk and control enables public authorities to make better decisions based on calculated risks and increases the focus on accountability. It supports the execution of the institution’s responsibilities and the achievement of its strategic objectives and thus leads to a more effective and efficient control and audit function without an unnecessary and disproportional increase of bureaucracy. It creates a real added value for the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of the work of public institutions.
