Agency Risk Management Working Group

The Agency Risk Management Working Group was established to promote Risk Management and best practices and implementation of agency-level Risk Management policies within NASA and to communicate risks to the Office of Safety and Mission Assurance. It addresses the opportunities, challenges and concerns noted by NASA centers that develop and implement center-level Risk Management policies, plans and processes.

The Agency Risk Management Working Group covers the spectrum of related activities across institutional Risk Management and program and project Risk Management. Best practices and lessons learned that are identified through this working group are shared to promote and enhance communication and collaboration across the centers.
