Agency Risk Assessment and Control Committees

Each agency has been asked to establish a management Risk Assessment and Control Committee (RACC) to meet quarterly. The purpose of the RACC is to maintain a proactive, comprehensive program of risk assessment and control of the agency, in cooperation with the Office of Risk Management, that minimizes the frequency and severity and probability of losses to which the agency is exposed. Also, to cultivate awareness, understanding and support for risk and safety management initiatives in the agency as part of DC’s strategic, integrated risk management program.
