Corporate Governance Review 2021/22 - Key Dates - Report of Corporate Director of Resources


The Committee received a report from the Corporate Director of Resources that informed of the key dates for the corporate governance review for the 2021/22 financial year (for copy see file of minutes).


Mr C Robinson referred to external bodies such as Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission and queried how outcomes and assurances from external organisations are reported to the Audit Committee. The Corporate Director of Resources explained that the annual governance statement and the control framework references significant matters around inspection outcomes. The risk management approach adopted also factored these outcomes into the strategic and operational risk register considerations. Individual major inspection outcomes would also be subject to scrutiny reviews and the overall governance and risks identified would be incorporated in the annual governance statement or form individual strategic risks which the audit committee have an oversight of. The improvement actions arising from inspection outcomes were factored into corporate and service planning also.



That the report be noted.
