The company is facing the issue of inefficient internal control system especially in context of cash handling and its recording and monitoring. In order to tackle the situation, the organization establishes a risk management plan. The managers estimated the impact of failure in internal control and define response to the issue.

PART C: SELECT AND IMPLEMENT TREATMENTS
Use the similar context to answer this part:
    Once again, use your previous responses - determine and select most appropriate options for treating risks and further create an action plan for implementation. (100 words)
Treatment of risk involved a range of options in order to mitigate the risk and further preparing and implementing the action plan (Kumar, et. al., 2009). The selection of most appropriate plan and option is a key factor in success of organization. Here the most appropriate plan indicates the risk treatment which balances the implementation cost of each activity with the benefits derived from it. The organization has four options for risk mitigation which includes; avoid, reduce, share or transfer and accept. The organization should implement a strategy which is designed to reduce the risk consequences and transfer the risk to the third party. The organization should implement the strategy that reduces the likelihood of risk to an acceptable level. They should transfer or outsourcing the risk regarding physical asset management by developing contracts with the service providers (Blos, et. al., 2010).
    Evaluate one example of your workplace risk context, analyse the use of specific legislative framework during communication to relevant parties, risk documentation and storing of risk information? Justify your judgment. (100 words)
The organization is facing the problem of inefficient coordination in the management and employees of the company which affects the functioning of the business and has a negative effect of the company’s profitability. This is due to the lack of proper internal control system and code of conduct in the organization (Sadiq, et. al., 2007). In order to reduce this risk the organization should establish proper communication framework between the employees and the organization by conducting several workshops, seminars, training programs, office luncheons and other related activities. The organization should also properly implement the code of conduct and define the roles and responsibility of both management and employees.
