Blue Zoo has been awarded a significant contract to automate risk management capability maturity self-assessment’s across whole-of-government in Victoria.

The Victorian Managed Insurance Authority’s (VMIA’s) role is to monitor risk management undertaken by Victoria Government departments and agencies. VMIA currently performs risk maturity assessments face to face. The risk maturity assessment is a lengthy process which requires significant resourcing and client interaction in order to perform the appropriate level of analysis, due diligence and quality in evaluating their risk maturity.

Blue Zoo has been awarded a multi-year contract to implement an online risk scorecard solution to automate the risk management maturity self assessment process. The solution will adopt our international award winning software platform (Governance Manager). The objectives of the project are to:

  1. Broaden participation in risk maturity assessments across the public sector (4500 clients with $173 billion in insured assets)
  2. Provide agencies with support and guidance to improve their risk maturity
  3. Collect data in a consistent and standardised form to support analytics, reporting and benchmarking
  4. Increase Victorian Government line of sight for risk management.
