Methodology: Defines the approaches, tools and data sources that may be used to perform risk management on the project.

Roles and Responsibilities. Defines the lead, support and risk management team membership for each type of activity in the risk management plan and then assigns people to these roles and clarifies their responsibilities.

Budgeting: Assigns resources and estimates costs needed for risk management for inclusion in the project cost baseline.

Timing: Defines when and how often the risk management process will be performed throughout the project life cycle and establishes risk management activities to be included in the project schedule.

General definitions and probability levels and impact levels are tailored to the individual project during the Risk Management Planning process for use in the Qualitative Risk analysis process.
