    Risk Assessment Consultant


    • The main objective of hiring a Risk Assessment Consultant is to be given an independent and objective report on the financial & business risks and finally get recommendations to ensure the sustainability of KEPRO as a PRO.
    • Identify risks: After a thorough examination of the Internal procedures, audited reports and any other publications, the Risk Consultant should be able to point out various sources of risks, how to identify them and finally offer advisory solutions.
    • Recommend ways of mitigating risks: After the independent examination of procedures, controls and any other reports, the Risk Assessment Consultant will then offer various ways on how to avoid/reduce risks.
    • Advise on Internal Control Procedures: Internal Control Procedures increase the degree of confidence third party have in financial statements. The Risk Consultant will identify gaps in internal control procedures that might lead to losses or no achievement of goals.
    • Develop a Risk Assessment Procedure: After an audit report, the Risk Assessment Consultant should help in performing audit duties that will help in developing a plan to obtain sufficient audit evidence.
    • Develop an Audit Risk Model: This is a risk-based approach to auditing and the Risk Assessment Consultant will help develop a model for KEPRO for identifying, detecting and reducing the risk level.
    • Identify Post Audit Gaps: Some events that happen post the audit period might severely impact KEPRO. The Risk Assessment Consultant has the mandate to identify any post audit events that the auditor might have left out in their report and further identify any new emerging issue that might affect KEPRO.

    Scope of Work
    The Scope of Work will cover the following areas:

    • Advisory on Internal Control Procedures: The internal control systems will be the main pointers of risk areas, hence a priority. Main areas of focus will be; procurement process, the ERP system and financial reporting.
    • Carry out Financial Risk Assessment: Financial risk assessment ensures that an organization meets its goals of profit and is able to pay for its financial obligations. KEPRO being a Not-for-Profit Organization (NPO), its main financial goal will be to meet its obligations and also ensure efficient cashflow through monthly remittance from the members. The Risk Assessment Consultant will assist in carrying out a credit assessment, using members’ data. Then carry out a liquidity assessment to check on outstanding financial obligations KEPRO has. Finally, the Risk Consultant will advise on all legal requirements and advise appropriately to ensure all legal requirements are in place to minimize on fines that might be paid for non-compliance.
    • Carry out Business Risk Assessment: Business risk assessment ensures that an organization will not fail. KEPRO’s mandate seeks to bring transformation to the community as one of its four core values and enhance a circular economy. The risk consultant should advise on viable projects that are in line with this vision as KEPRO isn’t motivated by profit.
    • Examination of KEPRO’s Financial Records: The Risk Consultant will examine past audited records to advise on way forward. Key focus will be on the Fund Administration Account, which mainly highlights the revenues generated and how they’re spent.
    • Development of KEPRO’s Risk Assessment Procedure: After thorough examination of all procedures, documents and testimonials required, the Consultant will finally draft a risk assessment procedure.
    • Development of an Audit Risk Model: Examination of past audit reports will inform the Risk Assessor the gaps identified by the auditor. From these gaps, the consultant will then develop a risk-based approach model for KEPRO.
    • Write an Independent and Objective Report: All findings of the Risk Consultant will be outlined in their final report. The consultant will then give recommendations in the report. The report will be presented to the board and management for action.
    • Identify any gaps left out in Audit Reports: Auditors generally gather information through sampling. Using sampling as a data collection technique, the auditor might have missed vital information that may severely affect KEPRO leading to either financial or business risks. Therefore, this seeks to strengthen on the need for a risk consultant.
    • Train KEPRO management on Risk Mitigation: The Consultant will then train the Finance team and management on Risk Assessment, the processes and procedures.

    The Risk Assessment Consultant is expected to meet the following:

    • Deliver comprehensive written and oral reports on the Internal Controls & Risk they might pose.
    • Develop comprehensive risk models that will clearly outline the risks, procedures and mitigation.
    • Presentation of findings to responsible stakeholders for decision-making.
    • Offer recommendations on risk reduction and mitigation.
