RISSB Project Priority Forum

This is a final reminder to all our stakeholders that RISSB will again be convening its annual Project Priority Forum in Melbourne on Wednesday 27 April 2016. The aim of this event is to determine RISSB’s project priorities for FY2016-17.

The venue for the forum this year is Rydges Melbourne Hotel, 186 Exhibition Street, Melbourne. It will commence at 10:00 and finish no later than 17:00.

A similar process will be followed to that adopted in 2015, however, we are also seeking input from our member organisations to ensure that their priority projects have been identified and are incorporated into the prioritisation process. Prior to the forum participants will be provided with a list of projects which has been developed over the past year and prioritised by members of RISSB’s Standing Committees. RISSB’s member organisations will also have had the opportunity to contribute to this process and their preferences will be consolidated into the results.

On receipt of this list participants should assess the projects based on their respective organisation’s risk profile and either obtain their organisation’s agreement of the list as it stands, or reorder it accordingly.

During the forum, participants will be requested to work with others to determine a national priority list of projects based on their organisation’s priorities. Previous forum outcomes suggest many of the priorities will be aligned. However, where they aren’t, a debate will occur and a consensus reached on the preferred order of these projects. Those projects assigned the highest priority (priority one) will be funded in FY2016-17, depending upon resources available to RISSB.

Organisations (or individuals) with an interest in RISSB’s project priorities for FY2016-17 are invited to nominate for this forum. Currently RISSB has less than 30 registrations for this important event so we would encourage all stakeholders to consider participating.

As places are limited please respond as soon as possible to Kirk Alber on (02) 6270 4528 or by email at kalber@rissb.com.au.

The RISSB team looks forward to your valuable contribution at the forum.
