This article, reproduced with the permission of the Association for Federal Enterprise Risk Management (AFERM), discusses how establishing and maintaining program integrity entails strong enterprise risk management.

Leading organizations view program integrity as strategic and preventative. In keeping with enterprise risk management (ERM) principles, leading organizations consider what could go wrong and prioritize what they want to achieve as well as what to avoid. This orientation can help take program integrity and ERM beyond compliance by providing value to program managers and contributing to program results.
