Assume most risk responsibilities, rather than transferring to the contractor. Transfer all or most risk responsibilities to the contractor. Share risk responsibilities with the contractor. 4) Your program, which has never managed more than two projects at a time, is 1 10175072 1 10162483 1 10162439 1 scheduled to kick off five projects within a two-week period. This will require more rigid organizational, communication, and management skills to ensure success moving forward. Which of the following best describes this situation?

It is only an opportunity. 5) The validity of a framing assumption (FA) is monitored by tracking which of the following? 2.5 pg. 7 of 27 The number of risks and issues over the life of the program The degree to which unexpected risks and issues surface during Milestone (MS) B Metrics, expectations, and implications during execution The number of high level risks identified 6) Your expansion program for a base in a foreign territory has been periodically delayed due to protestors blocking the streets to prevent construction vehicles from entering the base.

What would be the most appropriate step to manage and track this issue? 2.18 pg. 73 of 82 Feed the information into future process steps. Review the issue level and adjust the corrective action plan. Monitor the issue to collect only estimated cost information. Update the issue infrequently at informal meetings. 7) The following describes which type of category of risk: In an effort to stem cyberattacks aimed at Navy fighter jet communications and other essential systems, a new program is launched to reengineer the system integration to improve overall system security. If the initial reprogramming adjustments do not pass testing, the communication system will require a complete reprogramming effort, requiring an additional 1½ years to 10175053 1 10162427 1 10175068 1 the schedule. 2.7 pg. 40 of 57 Business Technical Programmatic 8) The following describes which source of potential risk: The program development team uses an intranet to exchange documents between multiple centers.

I cannot believe we pay people 100k a year to do this. Issues are resolved through resource reallocations; opportunities can only be addressed through innovation. Issues cannot be managed with as much precision as opportunities. Issues can only have a negative impact on a project. Issues can be analyzed and tracked; opportunities cannot. 11) Your government program team is developing a new underwater helmet equipped with enhanced visualization technology. Condensation issues threaten the visibility of the screen and your team does not have the means to deal with the risk.

Identify and submit candidate risks while supporting execution of the RM process. Identify the need for RM training for IPT personnel. 13) When should the Program Risk Process (PRP) Document be written? 2.6 pg. 34 of 57 Within the first 90 days following the kick-off meeting. Before the Request for Proposal (RFP) is issued. Before reaching the first milestone. As soon as possible when starting a new project. 14) Your team is analyzing cost and schedule data performance to a baseline plan. Which monitoring tool would be most appropriate? 2.12 pg. 61 of 64 Risk information form Management indicator system Earned value analysis Technical performance measurements (TPMs) 15) Which step of the Department of Defense (DoD) Risk Management Process provides an estimate of each risk’s likelihood and consequence? 2.3 pg. 6 of 14 Monitoring Analysis Mitigation Identification 16) What would be the appropriate corrective action for the following issue: As part of your program, a major training exercise is scheduled to take place that includes the use of handheld radios to monitor the exercise itself.

They looked at eliminating the risk by taking an alternate approach to replace the current radios and use different radios that achieve the same desired effect.
