Risk

Rules and regulations not known to staff

Lack of awareness of rules, regulations, internal processes, and procedures

Risk type: Cause

Risk driver: Internal

DESCRIPTION

It is easier for colleagues or third parties to take advantage of staff if staff have a low understanding or lack awareness of internal processes and procedures (e.g. for procurement, recruitment, etc.) or technical regulations. If governance structures, sector regulations, and organizational rules are not clearly defined, the organization lacks a level playing field for its staff. But even if rules and regulations are clearly defined, they are not likely to be put into action if staff and managers are not knowledgeable about them.

RED FLAGS

  • Non-compliance with defined procedures and processes or guidelines in departments or teams within the organization
  • Lack of management understanding¬†of the regulations on the management of water sector organizations
  • Rules and regulations not communicated or not easily accessible for staff
  • No training courses on relevant rules and regulations for staff
