These Guidelines on implementing risk management in statistical organisations were drafted under the coordination of the UNECE High Level Group for the Modernisation of Official Statistics, by the Modernisation Committee on Organisational Framework and Evaluation (MCOFE), chaired by Jackey Mayda (Statistics Canada).

They were prepared mainly by a group from the Italian statistical office (Istat), led by Fabrizio Rotundi, in cooperation with a team coordinated by Prof. Alessandro Hinna from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. The Guidelines contain a section on agile risk management prepared by the “Task team on Risk Management in the context of Agile development”, led by Ben Whitestone and Rich Williams (UK Office for National Statistics).
