The Commonwealth Awards for Excellence in Risk Management (the Awards) raise awareness of the significance of risk management across the Commonwealth by highlighting examples of best practice risk management.
From 2022, there will be a new award category in addition to the Enterprise Wide and Risk Initiative Category.
The ‘Risk in Focus’ category will identify a specific area of risk management to highlight each year. In 2022, the Risk In Focus Award will highlight Shared Risk – a key element of the new Commonwealth Risk Management Policy.
