Date lodged: 18 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government when the Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work last reviewed the risk register for (a) Highlands and Islands and (b) Scottish Enterprise, and what the findings were.

Answered by: Keith Brown 16 January 2018

Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise are solely responsible for the management of their respective risk registers.

Both operate an approved risk management policy and are responsible for assessing and evaluating both the likelihood and impact of a risk being realised.

All internal and external risks in their Corporate Risk Registers are actively managed at the appropriate level in each organisation.

A note of the key risks identified by Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise can be found in their latest annual report and accounts.
