Provision of Internal Audit and Risk Management Services 2020-2023

Report of the Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager.

Minutes:

The Audit Manager referred Members to the report setting out proposals for the continued delivery of Internal Audit and Risk Management Services for the Central Durham Crematorium Joint Committee by Durham County Council’s Internal Audit service (for copy see file of minutes).

 

Members noted the proposed number of days providing audit services through until 2022/23, and the breakdown as set out in the proposed SLA attached at Appendix 2 to the report. 

 

The Joint Committee was reminded that the previous report had set out the effectiveness of the service and therefore the recommendation was to enter into an SLA in respect of Audit and Risk Services.

 

Councillor A Hopgood noted the figures as regards fees appeared to be going down year on year and asked if this was correct.  The Audit Manager noted there was an additional fee in terms of risk management as set out within the appendices.  The Head of Finance and Transactional Services added that for ease of comparison the figures including the risk management fee should have read:

 

“2020/21 Internal Audit and Risk Management Fee - £6,500

2021/22 Internal Audit and Risk Management Fee - £6,670

2022/23 Internal Audit and Risk Management Fee - £6,840

 

The 2019/20 Internal Audit and Risk Management Fee is £6,250”

 

Resolved:

 

(i)           That the Service Level Agreement for the provision of Internal Audit and Risk Management Services with Durham County Council covering the next 3 financial years be approved.

(ii)          That the Annual Audit Plan and fee as set out within Schedule 2 of the Service Level Agreement be approved.
