Data were then analysed qualitatively and quantitatively in order to arrive at the results which were discussed and presented in chapter four. It was found that, management of liquidity risk is among the responsibility of the staff of the department of treasury, and that, there are procedures in place for mitigating liquidity risk that are stipulated in the risk management manual. Furthermore, the bank has a set of guidelines and policies concerning the issues of liquidity that are adhered by the bank. It was also found that, the bank has competent personnel in dealing with liquidity risk. However, the staffs are not regularly updated, as they do not frequently participate in training. Furthermore, It was found that the Azania bank is implementing the requirement of the Bank of Tanzania as they do have set of procedures in managing liquidity risk. The study noted that proper management of liquidity risk needs serious considerations in terms of resources, capacity building to its staff as well as efficiency adherence to the set of procedures and rules stated in the policy for managing risk. en_US
