The concept of risk in public sector administration
has characteristics which are unlike those defined in private sector
analyses and text book case studies.
Risk in the public sector frequently has political
overtones that defy the usual hedging of probabilities and can often
only be anticipated through extensive public sector executive experience.
IGS has been created to bring these insights and complements
these with a formal risk management schema that was developed for civil
administration, with particular focus on public compliance with the
written and normative expectations common to most governments.
