Before entering into contract with a contractor, the Project Manager should organise a risk workshop with the contractor (who can extend the invite to key sub-contractors as appropriated), the supervisors, senior supplier and key Imperial advisors as appropriated (Building Manager, Maintenance Manager, Engineering Team, User Coordinator).

The aim of the meeting is to assess the risk register submitted with the tender, discuss any additional risks that any party can foresee and to clearly allocate and agree owners and mitigation actions in a partnership and cooperative spirit.

The revised risk register will form part of the contract and if required the contract data may need to be changed before the contract is signed to reflect outcome of the risk workshop.
