Oxbridge Academy Short Course: Municipal Risk Management


The term ‘institutional risk management’ used in the public sector, is derived from the term ‘enterprise risk management’ that is used in the private sector. The fact that a municipality is not an enterprise with a profit motive, but a public institution that must deliver service, makes the term ‘institutional risk management’ more appropriate when using it in the context of a municipality. Institutional risk management, as a discipline and an essential element of municipal management, is based on the fact that the strategic and operational objectives of a municipality can only be achieved if the risks associated with it are determined upfront and managed accordingly on a continuous basis. In other words, the optimal delivery of service by municipalities depends on the manner in which municipal officials at all levels contribute to the management of the institutional risk that they are faced with.
