Inter-organisational Collaborative Software Development (CSD), like other inter-organisational collaborative efforts that span national, language and cultural boundaries, raises significant challenges and risks. Its study offers useful insight with regard to the more complex, collaborative, and interdependent operational environment, where new risks arise and interfere with software projects even when all traditional risks are well controlled. In this paper, we outline a collaborative risk management framework, and focus on a set of governing policies and management contingency processes required to support the framework and to manage the interactions with other critical project activities and goals.
