As the contracted Performance Auditor for Snohomish County, we recently completed a Performance Audit of the County’s Risk Management Activities. We found that Snohomish County implemented many leading practices to identify and manage risks to the County; however, additional opportunities exist to enhance its risk management activities to more effectively manage risks, provide greater transparency, and improve the cash position of its Risk Insurance Fund. Further, a more integrated approach to risk management, Enterprise Risk Management, would help the County to proactively identify emerging risks and take steps to mitigate and control identified risks.
