Annual Review of the System of Internal Audit

Joint Report of the Corporate Director of Regeneration and Local Services and the Corporate Director of Resources / Treasurer to the Joint Committee.



The Audit Manager stated that it was a requirement for the body that reviews the accounts to also have a review of the effectiveness of Internal Audit (for copy see file of minutes). 


Members noted that part of the role of Durham County Council’s Audit Committee was to scrutinise the performance and effectiveness of Internal Audit and had received a report at its meeting in June.  It was explained that this provided assurance to the Joint Committee that the work carried out by Internal Audit was in line with best practice and the latest Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS).


The Chair thanked the Officers for their continued hard work and noted the assurance given to the Joint Committee.




That the information demonstrating the efficiency and effectiveness of the Durham County Council Internal Audit Service be noted.
