Risk Management Strategy
We recognise that Risk Management is an essential part of delivering good governance in a Local Authority and reduces the uncertainty of achieving Basildon's strategic ambitions as defined in the Council's Corporate Plan. Effective and efficient risk governance and oversight provide management with assurance that the Council's business activities will be positively enhanced by opportunities, but not be adversely impacted by threats that could have been foreseen. The effective management of risk can support the organisation in delivering transformed services required within the dynamically changing environment of local government.
We are committed to driving the organisation forward to achieve a risk aware culture and in doing so Basildon Council has identified ways to manage risk which enable us to make effective decisions to meet the Councils objectives and to safeguard the Council's assets.
The Risk Management Strategy also has a related Policy which can be found here.
