Decision details

Risk Management - Operational Risks

Decision Maker: Audit Committee

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Case Management Officer Support Services reported that, following a review of the Operational Risk Register during Quarter 4 2021/22, it could be seen that 11 risks (11% of risks) were currently above Risk Appetite – a significant reduction when compared with Quarter 1 2021/22, when 26 risks (23% of risks) had been above Risk Appetite.  This demonstrated the Council’s continual focus on risk review and mitigation at both Strategic and Operational levels.


In response to a query, the Case Management Officer Support Services referred to Appendix 1 and informed the Committee that none of the operational risks had changed in the last quarter.


RESOLVED – That the operational risks which are positioned above the line of Risk Appetite, and their mitigating controls as listed in Appendix 1 to the report, be noted.
