2023 Government Risk Awareness Week Day 1: ERM Community of Practice

The ERM Community of Practice (ERM CoP) was created to provide an open forum for enterprise risk management (ERM) professionals from across the Federal Government. The ERM CoP was founded in 2017 after the release of the update to OMB Circular A-123 as a forum for federal employees in ERM to come together to share experiences and get and provide advice to each other. It is led by Treasury’s Deputy Chief Risk Officer. It is comprised of and operated entirely by federal employees from over 50 agencies. This group has been central in mobilizing ERM efforts for the Federal Government including writing and updating the ERM Playbook, creating a Federal ERM Maturity Model, and providing input into other various related guidance and regulations.
