Occupying multiple buildings, holding large and highly diverse collections, and working within a large matrix management structure are issues that create heightened challenges and opportunities for collection care and preservation. These factors necessitate whole-of-collections and enterprise-wide preventive approaches. Museum Victoria is committed to comprehensive collection risk assessment, as its key framework to drive future investment of resources in collection care and preservation. The cultural property risk analysis model (CPRAM), including its most recent revisions, is being used to structure and document this assessment. Methodological enhancements, such as precautionary defaults for risk variables and delineating respective risk accountabilities for different stakeholders,have clarified communication about risk issues between internal stakeholders.
