To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what risk registers are held by the public bodies for which his Department is responsible; and if he will make a statement.

There are two non-departmental public bodies that fall under the responsibility of the Department for International Development (DFID): (a) the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) and (b) the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission (CSC).

ICAI publishes in an annual corporate plan its approach to risk management and specific information on how it mitigates key risks. ICAI maintains a risk register as a central part of that risk management process. DFID scrutinises ICAI's risk management as part of the regular assurance activities, including internal audits, provided for in the framework agreement with ICAI.

CSC maintains a risk register which is reviewed annually by the Audit and Risk Management Committee and presented to the Commission each July.
