Risk management policy

The University's risk management policy sets out the University's underlying approach to risk management and provides guidance on how colleagues are expected to assess and manage risk within their day-to-day activities to ensure that well-informed decisions are made and that the University's activities are sustainable and compliant. The policy forms part of the University's internal control and governance arrangements.

The risk management policy was first approved by the Council at its  meeting on 21 January 2019. The policy was reviewed and updated in December 2021, following approval via Council circular (30/21). Download the risk management policy [PDF].
