Internal Audit Progress Report
The Board received a report from the Divisional Manager – Audit, Procurement and Operational Finance, updating them on the internal audit activity since the last progress report to the Board on 24 March 2021. It also highlighted any matters that were relevant to the Board’s responsibilities as the Council’s Audit Committee.
Members were referred to appendix one, which listed all the planned work for the year and the anticipated dates that each audit would be reported to the Board. It was noted that the planning and completion of work was subject to change, but this represented the best estimates at the current time.
Further to the approval of the Audit Plan on 24 March 2021, Members were advised that good progress had been made against the Plan so far, with most outstanding work relating to the 2020/21 Audit Plan now complete or nearing completion. The remaining work from 2020/21 would be reported to the next meeting of the Board.
Appended to the report were the executive summaries of the reports issued numbering 2 to 22, as listed in paragraph 4.2.
RESOLVED: That the Internal Audit Progress Report and comments made be noted.
