Risk management is an integral part of good management and corporate governance and is therefore at the heart of what we do. It is essential to the Council’s ability to deliver public services and as a custodian of public funds.
Warwickshire County Council (along with all other local authorities) is legally required to have risk management arrangements in place. The Council’s approach to managing risk is explained in the Risk Management Strategy which has been approved by Cabinet.
- sets out the Council’s objectives for the management of risk at a strategic and operational level, within projects, within partnerships and by its suppliers;
- describes the risk management framework that is in place by defining a systematic approach to how risk will be managed across the council; and
- ensures that associated thinking and practice is embedded in everyday processes, policies and activity.
