Risk assessment methodology l.jpg
Risk Assessment Methodology Council Present Committee Composition and Membership

Steps 1 – 9 will be performed by the members of each subcommittee:

  • Identify and document the goals and objectives of the subcommittee’s designated high-risk area within the context of UT Arlington’s Mission Statement. To assistant in identifying goals and objectives, please consider the following questions:

  • What is the nature of the “business” that you (we) are in?

  • Who are your (our) “customers?”

  • What do those “customers” want and need?

  • What does that say about what you (we) are trying to accomplish?

  • How will you (we) know if you (we) have been successful?


Risk assessment methodology con t l.jpg
Risk Assessment Methodology (con’t) Council Present Committee Composition and Membership

  • Identify and document risks associated with the accomplishment of the goals and objectives identified in #1, above. To assist in identifying these risks, consider the following questions:

    • What are some things that could go wrong?

    • What are some things that must go right?

    • What is the significance of any potential risks?

    • What is the likelihood of an occurrence of such an event?

      NOTE: Risks associated with accomplishment of goals and objectives are subject to continual revision due to changing federal and state laws, management philosophy, personnel, etc.


Risk assessment methodology con t15 l.jpg
Risk Assessment Methodology (con’t) Council Present Committee Composition and Membership

  • Review the most current list of risks (“A” and “B” lists) to determine if the risks identified in #2, above, are included on that list.

  • Once the inventory of risks has been determined and documented, even if it is identical to the previous year’s inventory of risks, carefully assess the probability of occurrence of each risk.

  • Assess the potential impact for each risk and ascertain whether there has been a previous occurrence of that risk.

  • Each factor (probably of occurrence and potential impact) for each of the identified risks will then be rated on a scale of 1 to 10; a “10” indicates the highest level of concern; a “1” indicates lowest of concerns. (Note newer methodology is using a high, medium, or low rather than numerical ranking)


Risk assessment methodology con t16 l.jpg
Risk Assessment Methodology (con’t) Council Present Committee Composition and Membership

  • Prioritize the identified risks from the highest to the lowest based on the multiplied totals determined in #6, above.

  • Based on the prioritization resulting from #7, above, separate the prioritized risks into two separate lists – “A” and “B”. The “A” list will reflect those items of highest risk. (Each subcommittee will be asked to determine the “break point” between the “A” and “B” lists.)

  • The goals and objectives, and the revised “A” and “B” lists will be submitted to the Office of Institutional Compliance.

  • The Office of Institutional Compliance will combine the information received from each subcommittee into a University-wide “A” and “B” list.


Risk assessment methodology con t17 l.jpg
Risk Assessment Methodology (con’t) Council Present Committee Composition and Membership

  • The Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, the Vice President for Finance, the Vice President for Administration and Campus Operations and the Executive Director for Assurance Services will meet to discuss the University-wide “A” and “B” lists.

  • The University-wide “A” and “B” list will be presented to the members of the Institutional Compliance Executive Committee.

  • The Institutional Compliance Executive Committee (the Committee) will meet to validate the University-wide “A” and “B” lists.

  • Based on this information, and after consultation with the Institutional Compliance Officer, the annual risk-based plan of compliance activities will be completed and submitted to UT System.
