FOI Request - Corporate Risk Register and Brexit Risk Assessment
I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
Specifically, I would like the following information:
1. Copies of the organisation’s most up-to-date Corporate Risk Register, including the date this was
2. Copies of any Brexit risk assessment or risk register carried out by the organisation.
1. The council’s corporate risk register (last formally approved by Policy and Resources Committee in February 2019) is under review at the present time to align it more closely to corporate priorities. A focus in the meantime is being given to the risk theme of ‘operational continuity and performance’ (see page 7 of Corporate Risk Register) to ensure critical services continue to be delivered during the pandemic. The corporate risk register can be viewed here.
2. No formal risk assessment of Brexit is held. This information is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information Not Held. However, the implications of Brexit have been considered in reports to the council in the past, the impacts on the council now that the UK has left the EU are likely to be dependent on future advice/ guidance/ funding to be made available by Scottish Government.
