  3. How do risk analysis and Risk Management inform your organizations decision making processes for long-range system planning, major project description and cost estimation, priority programming, and project development?

  4. Potential responses to identified risk - do you document, if known, possible response actions to the identified risk. Can the identified threat be avoided, transferred, or mitigated, or is it to be accepted?

  5. Has your organization used quantitative as well as qualitative decision criteria for comparing the expected benefits, costs, risks, and returns associated with implementing the Crisis Management project?

  6. Does it replace or negate traditional project management concerns with risk, scheduling, metrics, and execution, or does it shift how you think about these and necessitate new techniques and approaches?

  7. How much contingency reserve (e.g., reserves or buffers of time, resources, and cost) is needed to provide your organization with the level of certainty it requires based upon its risk tolerance?

  9. How do financial analysts in your organization look the financial statements and assess risks associated with a project and/or whether the company has sufficient cash flow to pay off debt?

  10. While the project might have sufficient funds for the acquisition of required Hardware, software or COTS solution, does it have sufficient funding for any additional specialized tasks?
