icare CEO Vivek Bhatia today announced the 2016 finalists for the icare TMF (Treasury Managed Fund) Awards for Excellence which recognise the NSW public sector’s standout performers within a variety of risk management-related disciplines.

“Our goal is to put the customer at the centre of everything we do by driving stronger engagement through collaboration with NSW government employers,” Mr Bhatia said.

“The Award finalists are role models for both the public and private sector in implementing risk management strategies by pioneering new systems, processes and design.

“NSW government agencies are driving more risk-aware workplace cultures and introducing innovative ways of protecting the valuable people and assets of the NSW government and the community they serve.


 “I’m incredibly proud to see the icare TMF Awards have become a prime opportunity for government agencies to share their experience and learnings in both preventive and post incident risk management.”
