Risk Management Performance

We are audited annually by internal audit. The most recent audit stated that it was ‘Good’ with no recommendations:

"The Risk Management Strategy was reviewed, developed and updated following the transition to a unitary authority.  The Strategy is comprehensive with roles and responsibilities clearly defined and a system for identifying, categorising, recording and reviewing risk is in operation.  Risk management has evolved into a continuous process.  The Risk Management systems are robust."
