Risk in the investment activity of local-government units in Poland

Jerzy Piotr Gwizdała


The aim of this article is to demonstrate the dependencies that exist between the conduct of effective investment activity and risk management in units of local government. The discussion relates to public entities, since this sector is marked by a large number of investments, often simultaneous ones, by discipline in spending financial resources, and also by a legally imposed duty to implement managerial control, including processes of risk management. Furthermore, investments in this sector are often co-financed from external funds, deriving from European Union structural funds, which offers an opportunity to conduct a greater number of more modern investments; however, this generates additional risk connected with obtaining and spending these funds.
