The ZF Mgcawu District Municipality recognizes Risk Management as an integral part of responsible management within the organization that must be implemented in an integrated manner within all departments, operations and processes with the overall objective of reducing risk, as far as reasonably practical. The Risk Management Unit resides within the sphere of the Municipal Manager and is responsible for coordination of all risk management activities in the Municipality.
The Risk Management Unit supports the achievement of objectives and reduces the chance of serious errors occurring. The principal purpose of the Risk Management Unit, where available, is to facilitate, support and advise line management and employees in relation to the management of risk. It is not their responsibility to manage risks identified within a service. The management of risks is a line management function and responsibility.
