Resource Set: Risk Register Spreadsheet Tool
A collection of documents related to the Risk Register Spreadsheet Tool. It includes the tool report and the tool.
This document provides an explanation of the steps taken to develop the risk register tool. The research team conducted a survey of current practices for risk management across state DOTs, international agencies, and non-transportation organizations. Then they built a draft tool and received user feedback before finalizing the tool.
This risk register spreadsheet tool was developed for use by state transportation agencies through NCHRP Project 08-36/126. The tool is now available for download from the project page. The project final report describes the resulting tool. Both enterprise- and program-level examples are also provided. Notably, the tool was designed to reflect the guidance developed for the related research effort, NCHRP Project 08-93: Managing Risk Across the Enterprise: A Guidebook for State Departments of Transportation
