Progress Report on Internal Audit Activity
Report of Emma Hodds, Head of Internal Audit.
The Head of Internal Audit provided Members with progress made between 1 April 2017 and 20 November 2017 in relation to the completion of the Annual Internal Audit Plan for 2017/18.
Some significant changes to the approved Internal Audit Plan were highlighted in the areas of Communications and Democratic Services.
Seven audits had been completed to date in the financial year and high level summaries of conclusions had been provided at Appendix 2 of the report.
It was noted that the total number of days of programmed work completed by TIAA Ltd was 126.5 days and 10 days completed on the ARP Service areas, totalling 136.5 days of the revised audit plan (61%).
Councillor Hewett asked why the recommendation in the Content Management audit which had scored a limited assurance in 2016/17 was disagreed. The Head of Internal Audit explained that this had previously been reported at the Committee in February 2017 and the report explained the reason why the IT Manager had accepted the risk of not implementing the recommendation.
RESOLVED that Members note the outcomes of the seven audits completed by TIAA, in the period covered by this report, and the amendments to the 2017/18 Internal Audit Plan.
