Proactive, comprehensive, and systematic risk prevention and management practices sustain the agency’s ability to positively impact the communities and people it serves by reducing its risk, loss, and liability exposure.
COA’s Risk Prevention and Management standards require that agencies take a proactive approach to risk by continually improving systems and practices for identifying and mitigating potential risks, and learning from adverse events and challenges when they occur. Proactive, systemic risk prevention and management requires a holistic approach that involves staff throughout the agency and considers all areas of potential risk including, but not limited to: legal compliance, liability exposure, health and safety, human resources, contracting, technology, security of information, client rights and confidentiality, and finances. Such practices contribute to mission fulfillment by protecting the agency’s long-term sustainability.
