Emergent Internal Audit Plan 2021/2022 - Report of Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager (Interim)

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report from the Interim Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager which provided details of the emergent Internal Audit Plan for 2021/2022, attached as Appendix 2 (for copy see file of minutes).

 

Regarding the challenges the team faced in delivering the plan, Mr C Robinson asked if there was anything the Audit Committee could do to support addressing those challenges. The Interim Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager informed the Committee that the main challenge was the unknown elements of additional work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of extensions and additional grants. Working remotely was time consuming and he intended to increase resources to help deliver the plan.

 

Mr Rudd referred to the allocation of resources table and suggested that previous years comparisons would be useful to see where the emphasis was changing. The Interim Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager confirmed that this information could be provided.

 

Resolved:

That the proposed direction and process for the development of the emergent Internal Audit Plan be noted for formal approval in June 2021.
