The operational risk constitutes a small part of a bank’s risk profile which includes unpredicted measures that might possibly source the failure of the whole bank.

Moreover, the Permanent Control Plan for each department of the bank resulting in the process and procedure review on the risk assessment task to reduce or eliminate unwanted issues and problems arise from the process and system in the organisations. Each risk assessment activity with the permanent control plan was approved by the bank’s top level management before executed by phases in the year. There are 4 phases’ in the permanent control plan; monthly, quarterly, half yearly and yearly. In this study the researchers has looked into the half yearly control plan. The half yearly permanent control plan exercise executed by the Operational Risk Officer found non-compliance issues on a few department's work processes.
