Risk management, because risk mitigation plan is created and implemented.

I'd agree with Dinah & Pawan - you are mitigating (in this case reducing probability of realization) the risk of unnecessary changes by hiring the lobbying firm.

HI Kiron

your answers are welcome .... before I say about answers are right or wrong please see the below logic.. this is tricky question and we should not rush to answer it, but we have to select the most appropriate answer with respect to asked question.

Consider the following and modify with the answer if you think

1. Question asks which process is the example ...so answer should be a process.
2. Option 2 & 3 are not processes
3. Integrated change control also includes influencing the factors that could cause change ... as question provides the data asking to prevent unnecessary changes

what say now ????

Is there any transfer of risk involved with that depending on typical contract clauses?

It is Risk Management because this looks to me like a Mitigation Response Plan or could be Transfer.

George -

It'd be a transfer strategy if the lobbying firm had "skin in the game" if their efforts were ineffective.

Kiron,

I've never worked with lobbyists before so didn't know if that was standard practice.

Thanks,

I think it is 2 since it is directly concerned with controlling changes. But lobbying is unethical.

As per your question is related to option 2, which is Risk Management, but before there should the risk management plan should be prepared and all risks are identified in risk register. Then, as per your question is related plan risk response, which is Transfer strategy and the risk is negative, because, there are unapproved change requests!!!
