Facts you need to know:
· You have been requested to fill out this assessment in support of the MKV Risk Assessment and Risk management program.
· Helping to assess Risk within the MKV program is part of your job. This will take about one and a half to two hours to complete. You have 10 days in which to complete it. You may complete the assessment at work or at home – wherever you have access to the internet. After submitting your assessment, please send an email to Marty.Sargent@us.army.mil indicating that you have completed and submitted this initial assessment.
· Definitions: Program risk assesses risk within the program’s structural, programmatic, and management processes, while technical risk assesses risk within the program’s technical design and implementation.
· This initial assessment presents a list of program risks and risk areas common to DoD Acquisition Programs. You are asked to assess the extent to which each of these candidate program risks is applicable to the MKV Program and to suggest changes to the list. A final, shorter list will eventually be compiled from these initial assessment and comments. From these, a set of MKV specific program risks will be developed, assessed, mitigated, and tracked.
