Annual Review of the Effectiveness of Internal Audit 2017/2018


The Committee considered a report of the Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager which provided members with the opportunity to comment of the Annual Review of the System of Internal Audit (for copy see file of Minutes).


Further to a question from Councillor Temple about the pressure of recruiting new staff due to the budget cuts and having no new staff for a number of years, the Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager explained that the service would be interviewing for apprentices shortly to appoint by September.  They would be based within the Fraud team but would gain experience throughout the service.  The Corporate Director of Resources added that there was a need to ensure that the service had the right expertise with the right level of staff.


The Chairman was assured that the needs of the service were being met and it was recognised that the service was well resourced.



That the content of the report be noted.
