Better Practice Guide - Risk Management
Risk Management underpins an agency's approach to achieving its objectives. An important responsibility for any government body is the effective and efficient use of Commonwealth resources. This aim can be aided by sound risk management practices. To increase the likelihood of achieving desired outcomes, informed decision should be made based on evaluation of the associated risks.

Comcover's Better Practice Guide - Risk Management provides advice to agencies on the key principles and concepts of risk management to be considered when developing and implementing an enterprise wide approach to the management of risk.
The Guide emphasises the importance of developing a positive culture for managing risk as well as providing a summary of the context for managing risk in the Australian Government.
To support the concepts discussed in the Guide, Comcover will continue to develop and release a range of better practice material, including case studies and fact sheets, which will provide further practical examples that illustrate and promote good risk management within the public sector.
Comcover welcomes contributions from Fund Member agencies to help continue to promote and facilitate better practice risk management. Please contact Comcover Member Services on 1800 651 540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
