To be aware of and respond effectively to circumstances that could significantly delay or halt the program, the Authority should hire a risk manager as soon as possible. Until then, it should designate and require Authority staff to attend risk-management meetings and workshops.
The Authority hired a risk manager in August 2012. According to the Authority, the risk manager will attend the risk management meetings related to updating the risk register, identifying new risks, performing qualitative risk analyses, and coordinating and tracking risk responses.
