We are pleased to provide the attached results of the first annual AFERM ERM Survey. Nearly 30 practitioners from the Federal Government participated in the Survey. Co-sponsored with PwC, the survey captures feedback from Federal risk management practitioners through their responses to the questionnaire and a number of in-person interviews.
Some key takeaways from the Survey include the following:
Effective risk management is a necessity and ERM is widely recognized as a growing best practice in the Federal Government
The amount of resources deployed in support of ERM will increase in both the near-term and the foreseeable future
Successful implementation and maturation of an ERM program in the Federal space requires the support and commitment of Agency leadership
