B) Creation of Risk Management Plan (for nonprofits with less than 75 FTE staff): Step 1 – Phone interview with Executive Director/CEO reviewing all core categories of risk, ensuring process and end product meet requirements.  Step 2 – Full day on-site completing 1-on-1 interviews with key staff.  Step 3 – Phone interviews with those not available on-site.  Step 4 – David creates the risk management plan.

The document is a “living plan” just like our strategic plan in that it is easily updatable, colour-coded and concise.  It lays out: (1) categories of risk, (2) specific identified risks within each category, (3) each with a risk score based on likelihood and severity, (4) each with identified strategies for improvement, (5) each with a “risk owner”, and (6) each with a progress colour code.

  • Fee:  $5500 plus hst/gst (plus travel costs – and if total travel time more than 2.5 hours from our Toronto location this fee will be customized based on hours of travel).

C) Intensive Risk Management Plan creation: three to five days on-site (interviewing, detailed review of board & operations risk policies, website and social media, program visits, etc.) completing an on-site operational risk assessment in all core risk areas.  David will provide a customized Risk Management Plan with Policy Amendments.

  • Fee:  Determined by context (minimum fee is $9500). Plus hst/gst (plus travel costs).
