The Risk Management Framework is comprised of a Policy, Plan and Register that work in unison to mitigate SportWest’s risk. The ongoing assessment and review of the Framework ensures effectiveness and relevance.

The Risk Management Policy outlines the risk management culture of SportWest and the commitment and expectations of the Board for the management of risk.

The Risk Management Plan is designed to guide the implementation of the Risk Management Policy.

The Risk Register is a reporting tool designed to centrally store all strategic and operational risk information.
