Risk Management

The Government of South Australia's commitment to risk management is outlined in a Risk Management Policy Statement. This Statement was last reviewed in 2009 and jointly endorsed by the Premier and Treasurer in November 2009.

The policy makes Public Sector Chief Executives accountable to their Ministers for the development and implementation of a risk management framework specific to the organisation's business and organisational context.

Further, Chief Executive accountability for risk management extends to their agency contribution to the attainment of the whole of government economic, social and environmental objectives stated in South Australia's Strategic Plan.

Risk Management Support

From 1 July 2014 SAICORP no longer provides risk management advice to Government agencies.

SAICORP has, however, developed a risk register database that is available for agencies as discussed below.

Risk Register Database

As part of the development of an end to end insurance system, SAICORP has developed a Risk Register database. This database is available for use by agencies. Its features include:

  • easily identifies changes to risks between reporting periods
  • allows both qualitative and quantitative assessment of the risk level
  • supports the quantification of risk through a client-definable matrix scoring system.

The database provides an alternative to maintaining spreadsheets and is less expensive and resource intensive than a large scale risk management solution.
