Risk Management

The Council ensures that its core values are embedded in its activities and are secured through the following governance measure

Our approach to assessing and managing risk to support the strategic and operational decision making process.

We have a Risk Management Policy within which all staff have a role. Our Management Team has oversight and supervisory responsibility for managing all risks. Our Risk Register provides for a clear allocation of responsibilities for ownership and a management of risk as follows:

  • The Council undertakes an systematic evaluation of its corporate risk and maintains a risk register.
  • The Departments, comprising key operations and support functions, are responsible for execution of risk management.
  • The Management Team has oversight and supervisory responsibility, and is responsible for ensuring that the Risk Register is reviewed and updated regularly.
  • Audit Committee will evaluate and review and provide independent assurance on the effectiveness of our risk management.

Risk Management Policy

The Council works within the Governance Framework developed by the City and County Management Association (CCMA), the Association of Irish Local Government (AILG) in conjunction with the Institute of Public Administration (IPA).
