Risk Assessments

Please contact RMI if you would like assistance in performing a risk assessment. Risk assessments can have a number of applications – the can be applied to populations served, unit level operations, programming, projects, future plans or initiatives. Risk assessments should contain the following elements – the identification of the risk, impact, and likelihood of risk occurring, identification of risk treatment strategies and department/ person responsible for implementation of risk treatment strategies, costs associated with risk treatment strategies, monitoring methodology, and frequency.

Risk assessments can assist in planning and allocating resources, understanding impacts of decision making, or “auditing” existing programs in order to plan for improvements.
