The purpose of this publication is to provide guidance for conducting risk assessments of federal information systems and organizations. In addition to identifying the steps in the risk assessment process, it also provides guidance in identifying risk factors to watch and courses of action that should be taken. Risk assessments provide the senior leaders/executives with the information needed to determine appropriate courses of action in response to identified risks. The target audience includes individuals with oversight responsibilities for risk management, organizational missions/business functions, acquiring information technology products, services, or information systems, information system/security design, development, and implementation,
Although there is a wide diversity of evaluation models, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, Fitzpatrick et al. (2004) and Stufflebeam (2001) assert that understanding each evaluation’s components and selecting the appropriate one is crucial to the evaluation process. A participatory evaluation approach uses stakeholders, people with an interest or “stake” in the program to be engaged in the evaluation process, so they may better understand evaluation and the program under evaluation to use the evaluation findings for decision-making purposes. This approach stresses the importance of being responsive to realities of the program and concerns of participants rather than relying on preconceptions. It is associated with a formative process evaluation as the evaluation will address whether the program is meeting
In this way, the plan contributes to managing potential threats that make it difficult to achieve project objectives and how to exploit the opportunities for better project performance. To make it more effective, the risk management plan includes specific roles and responsibilities team members assume towards handling the threats. Also, the plan also details the responses to be employed once the anticipated threats occur as well as the opportunities. The risk management plan is a course of action for the better management of project threats and exploitation of its
Assessing the impact and evaluating regulations The importance of taking into account the impact of regulations on innovation has gained increased traction and has increasingly been underscored at international level. Regulatory impact assessment (RIA) supports the process of policy making by conducting an ex ante assessment of the implications of potential regulatory options. RIA can help identify where rules and regulations are overlapping or incoherent and provide a useful support for decision making (OECD, 2015c). RIA can be helpful when assessing requirements for innovative solutions – which may affect civil servants – when developing regulatory options. Evaluation of regulations assesses the performance of regulations against stated
There is high risk with this model, however the degree of risk can be controlled by acquiring information on the probability of the selected alternative producing the desired outcome. Another option would be the Incremental Model. With this model, Mr. Miller would work with the faculty and other individuals to establish instructional goals. Mr. Miller could then return to the issues surrounding ability grouping to determine whether the decision would enhance goal attainment. Mr. Miller could also choose the Mixed Scanning Model.
a deliberative council are mandated to come up with decisions. Even though similar processess are applied internationally there is a slight variation on the adminitsration part. Coordination Basically these are all activities leading to development of EQA framework, that is maintaining working relations woith stakeholders, monitoring the major phases of QA and training peers to perform critical tasks. Administration Such functions include sensitising institutions about the EQA policies and procedures and also developing peers who will be involved in critical tasks throughout the EQA process. Conclusion Finally it is evident that quality control is important to the education system of a country.
Strategic communication is essential for the development of a successful communication plan to reach out to the various targeted stakeholders when disseminating important information to establish and maintain relationship. The word Strategy is defined to be a plan of action used to accomplish a long-term goal (Oxford Dictionary). Strategic communication is responsible for assessing the overall situation and highlighting the issues, possible outcomes and solutions that may aid or affect the organization’s ability to function (Mahoney 2013, 20). Aside from maintaining media relations, strategic communication allows organization to step into their role of a ‘social actor’, where they are able to seek organizational goals and objectives through
The IS of a bank should evolve towards the achievement of an OR-IS that enables the bank’s competitive position to be strengthened. In addition, the bank should aspire to obtain the external validation of its supervisory authority, which certifies the OR-IS implemented and classifies it as an advanced measurement approach (AMA) under Basel II. An analysis was made of the principal organizational weaknesses and necessities that should be rectified; with a view to applying the methodologies designated the AMA to OR in the Basel II agreement. Basel II had given increased visibility to the “OR” variable and there
Stephen McNally use this phrase in identifying the word “risk” , “ When working toward its objectives, every organization Objectives faces uncertainty which is called “risk”, which can be either positive, representing the opportunities or negative representing the threats. If we want to establish more effective RM/IC (Risk management & internal controls ) in our organization, we can leverage several new or newly revised standards, guidelines, and resources. Such as: 1. COSO Internal Control—Integrated Framework (2013). In May 2013, COSO issued a revised version of its Internal Control—Integrated Framework (ICIF).
Furthermore. Varna and Sharma (1983) also argue that Comparative Public Administration contributes to better understanding of the specific characteristics of administrative systems working in different nations and cultures. Therefore, comparative studies aids in enlightening issues that are liable for national and cross-cultural evaluations and changes in the administrative
