The Integrated Care Board’s Risk Management Strategy and Board Assurance Framework underpin the its wider risk management framework and describes the organisation’s approach to risk management, including risk appetite tolerance.

The strategy defines responsibilities for risk management and associated governance arrangements, including reporting arrangements to the board. It is intended to promote and embed best practice throughout the organisations and is applicable to all levels of risk.

The strategy facilitates a dynamic approach to risk management thereby enabling the ICB Board to remain sighted on the highest level risks and assure itself that appropriate mechanisms of control are in place.

Governing Body Assurance Framework

The Governing Body Assurance Framework (GBAF) provides a structure and process that enables the organisation to focus on the strategic and principal risks that might compromise the organisation in achieving its corporate objectives.

It also maps out both the key controls that should be in place to manage those objectives and associated strategic risks, and confirms that the Governing Body has sufficient assurance about the effectiveness of the controls. Below are the GBAFs published by NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group, which is the predecessory organisation to the ICB. GBAFs for the new organisation will be uploaded when they are available.
