This Federal Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Maturity Model was developed by OMB and a pilot group of federal agencies and is included in the latest edition of the ERM Playbook.
The OIG’s Top Unimplemented Recommendations: Solutions To Reduce Fraud, Waste, and Abuse in HHS Programs is an annual publication of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General. In this edition, they focus on the top 25 unimplemented recommendations that, in OIG’s view, would most positively affect HHS programs in terms of cost savings, program effectiveness and efficiency, and public health and safety if implemented.
This Checklist was discussed during the 2022 ERM Summit Session: ERM Audit Ready. The purpose of this exercise is to analyze the agency’s ERM capabilities as they relate to the CIGIE Inspectors General Guide to Assessing Enterprise Risk Management to more thoroughly assess capabilities and identify areas of focus for future development. Accomplishments and assessments should be considered on a combination of factors, including the agency’s risk profile, risk register, maturity model(s), as well as a SWOT analysis which may be done as part of the ERM team’s annual assessment.
This tool was discussed during the 2022 ERM Summit Session: ERM Audit Ready. The purpose of PART is to foster discussion about programs and/or processes subject to audit and identify opportunities for improvement before an audit begins. The use of the PART can assist management in fulfilling its responsibility for monitoring their internal controls and evaluating the results to ensure they are operating effectively.
The RIMS Strategic and Enterprise Risk Center presents: 2022 Melissa Reynard Director of ERM at the Internal Revenue Service
In November 2021, RIMS presented the Internal Revenue Service with the society’s 2021 ERM Global Award of Distinction. The IRS was honored for its progress in anticipating emerging risks, the steps it took to create a more risk-aware culture, and ultimately developing an ERM structure to enhance risk sharing and strategic decision-making.
The honor was well deserved, as so much needed to be accomplished and implemented against the backdrop of an extended government shutdown, sweeping tax reforms and significant operational disruptions within the IRS itself caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The government agency’s ERM program assisted its resilience amidst mounting uncertainties and vulnerabilities.
To learn more about the ERM program, we met with Melissa Reynard, director of ERM at the IRS, who was on site to receive the award at the RIMS ERM Conference 2021. Reynard has served in the position since January 2020, and previously was a senior risk advisor in the IRS Office of the Chief Risk Officer, a role she assumed in 2014.
