Enterprise Risk Management
Incorporating ERM at state agencies
The Governor’s Executive Order 16-06 states, in part, that all state agencies should prioritize loss prevention. Agencies can do this by assessing all areas of agency exposure to risk (strategic, operational, compliance, financial, reputational, health/safety, and employment). Agencies can then manage those exposures as an interrelated risk portfolio, rather than in departmental “silos." Agency risk managers should seek to embed ERM in all levels of the agency.
