Internal Audit Progress Report Period Ended 31 March 2021


The Committee considered a report of the Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager (Interim) which informed Members of the work that had been carried out by Internal Audit during the period as part of the 2020/21 Internal Audit Plan (for copy see file of Minutes).


The Audit Manager highlighted progress against the Plan for each Service Grouping, and informed Members of the amendments to the plan and the unplanned audit reviews in the quarter.  The report also provided a summary of the survey response rate, progress on actions due, implemented and overdue, and the finalised audit that had been issued with a limited assurance opinion. Despite the challenges faced by all services due to the pandemic, 70% of all audits had been delivered as at 31 March 2021, with one limited assurance audit opinion delivered within the quarter.



That the report be noted.
