Internal Audit Progress Report Period Ended 31 March 2021


The Committee considered Appendices 6 and 7 of the report of the Chief Internal Auditor and Corporate Fraud Manager (Interim) which detailed the actions agreed by managers in response to internal audit recommendations that were outstanding (for copy see file of Minutes).


The Audit Manager highlighted in detail the context and findings of the review of Fuel Cards and explained the underpinning reasons for the limited assurance given in this review.


The Head of Environment and Head of Transactional Services attended to provide the Committee with an update on the actions that had been implemented following the limited assurance opinion given and to provide assurance that the actions implemented and the controls that had been strengthened would address the issues highlighted. Both gave thanks to the Internal Audit Team for their work in this area and welcomed a follow-up review within the next six months at which it was expected that the Audit Committee would receive independent assurance these matters had been addressed to.



That the report be noted.
