This report provides a summary of efforts by the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center NFESC to apply Operational Risk Management ORM principles in the development of Risk Management in Facilities RMF tools for assessing Naval shore facilities. The overall objectives of these efforts are to 1. Determine how we can measure the level of risk to a mission if maintenance and repair projects are reprogrammed or deferred. 2. Determine how the ORM process can be used as a tool to validate the need to repair or replace operational facilities from a Navy-wide perspective. 3. Provide recommendations for deploying RMF, ORM was developed as a means to integrate risk analysis into operations. However, ORM mainly focuses on the safety of personnel and equipment. The principle steps of ORM include identifying potential hazards, determining the associated degree of risk, and making a decision based on risk assessment. RMF applies the ORM process by identifying the risks associated with deferring facilities maintenance, repair, or replacement. Once these risks are identified and an overall assessment developed, the appropriate decision-maker at the activity, region, claimant, or Office of Chief of Naval Operations OPNAV can review and determine risk acceptability and program projects in accordance with mission requirements. RMF provides the Navy with a decision support tool for assessing, managing, and validating risk in respect to the repair or replacement of operational facilities from a mission perspective.
