    A. General Information Basic information that identifies the project.

    Project Title The proper name used to identify this project.

    Project Working Title The working name or acronym used to identify the project. If an acronym is used, define the specific meaning of each letter.

    Proponent Secretary The Secretary to whom the proponent agency is assigned to or the Secretary that is sponsoring an enterprise project.

    Proponent Agency The agency that will be responsible for the management of the project.

Prepared by The person(s) preparing this document.

    Date/Control Number The date the plan is finalized and the change or configuration item control number assigned.

    B. Risk Management Strategy Describes how risk identification and evaluation is performed, the general mitigation approach, and the plan for maintaining a current risk management plan. 1. Risk Identification Process The processes for risk identification.

    2. Risk Evaluation and Prioritization How risks are evaluated and prioritized.

    3. Risk Mitigation Options Describe the risk mitigation options. They must be realistic

    and available to the project team.

    4. Risk Plan Maintenance Describe how the risk plan is maintained during the project


    5. Risk Management Responsibilities Identify all project team members with specific risk

    management responsibilities. (e.g., an individual responsible for updating the plan or an

    individual assigned as a manager).

    C. Risk Analysis Summary Using the table provided, list each risk identified, the probability of occurrence, the expected impact level, a description of the impact, and when the risk event is likely to occur.

Risk Number - Assign a Risk Number to each risk.

Risk Name - Provide a Risk Name or title for the risk.

    Probability of Occurrence Identify, as a percentage, the likelihood that the risk event will occur.

    Impact Level - Provide a value (between 1 and 5) for the impact the risk will have on the project. A value of one (1) is the least impact and a value of five (5) is the highest impact.

Impact Description - Describe the impact of the risk is if it occurs.

    Time Frame - Estimate the actual date or timeframe in which the risk is most likely to occur. Timeframes are provided in fiscal years and quarters if known.

    D. Risk Responses Summary - Prioritize and describe the plans for responding to each risk

     identified and evaluated in Section C.

    Risk Management Plan Instructions

    Risk Priority - Assign a numeric priority to the risk identified in Section C

    Risk Number - Copy the Risk Number from Section C for each risk.

    Risk Name Copy the Risk Name from Section C for each risk.

    Responsible Person - Identify the person responsible for monitoring the specified risk and

    executing the mitigation action(s).

    Mitigation Action(s) - Describe the mitigation action(s) that are taken if the anticipated risk


    Response Trigger - Identify an event, report, or activity that will initiate the mitigation

    action(s) identified in the previous column.

    E. Risk Mitigation Cost - Detail the estimated cost for responding to each identified risk.

     Based on the Risk Response Summary in Section D, identify the total cost of responding to a

     particular risk using the most likely mitigation strategy and the planned expenditure

     categories provided in the table.

    Risk Number - Copy the Risk Number from Section C for all identified risks.

    Risk Name Copy the Risk Name from Section C for all identified risks.

    Internal Staff Labor, Service, Development Tools, Software, Hardware, Materials and

    Supplies, Facilities, Telecommunications, Training - Identify the planned expenditure for the

    mitigation actions associated with the identified risk for each of the following (items 3

    through 9).

    Total Cost Total the cost of responding to each identified risk.

F. Contingency (Risk) Budget - Calculate the Contingency Budget for each fiscal year based

    on the Probability of Occurrence (from Section C) and the Total Cost for mitigation (from

    Section E) for each risk. Use one table for each fiscal year and list all risks anticipated for

    that fiscal year (see Section C). Calculate the Planned Contingency Cost for each risk in the

    last column, by multiplying the Probability of Occurrence and the Mitigation Cost. Sum the

    Planned Contingency Cost for all risks anticipated in the fiscal year at the bottom of each


    Contingency Budget for FY Enter the correct fiscal year for each table

    Risk Number - Copy each Risk Number for a fiscal year from Section C.

    Risk Name Copy each Risk Name for a fiscal year from Section C.

    Probability of Occurrence - Copy the Probability of Occurrence for the risk from

     Section C.

    Risk Management Plan Instructions

    Mitigation Cost Copy the Total Cost for the risk mitigation from Section E.

    Planned Contingency Cost For each risk calculate the Planned Contingency Cost by multiplying the Probability of Occurrence (Column 3) with the Mitigation Cost (Column 4).

Total Sum the Planned Contingency Cost for the fiscal year.
