You will then need to implement risk treatment, schedule and complete monitoring of risk treatment in accordance with your area of responsibility, and write a report containing recommendations for the improvement of risk management.

  • Create a schedule of monitoring activities. Consider/record:
  • all controls and relevant monitoring activities
  • responsibilities, including personal responsibilities
  • performance measures (measures of success) and targets
  • key timelines for monitoring activities
  • audit requirements as specified in scenario.
  • Implement risk management activities as per the risk treatment action plan you completed in Assessment Task 1 and monitor the success of controls as required by the monitoring schedule and organisational duties.
  • Complete a risk audit report. Complete the report regarding areas of your own responsibility. Complete risk descriptions, objectives, measures for areas of others’ responsibility. Submit copy of incomplete report to your assessor to receive results.
  • Receive a completed copy of the audit report from your assessor.
  • Amend the audit report if necessary for areas of your responsibility. For example, your view of the success of your control activities, such as training, procedure writing, and communications for the project team or Australian staff and managers may change if their affect on others’ behaviour is short lived, not adhered to, or not ultimately effective in reducing or eliminating risk.
  • Based on your analysis of the completed audit report, produce a one- to two-page report for continuous improvement. Include at least three recommendations for improvement of risk management in the organisation. Attach the final audit report to report on continuous improvement.
