Internal Audit Management Report - Fourth Quarter 2007/08

Decision Maker: Audit and Governance Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received and considered report 160/07 of the Audit Manager which reported on management issues within the Internal Audit service, summarised progress against the 2007/08 Internal Audit Plan, and summarised the priorities and planned work for the remainder of the fourth quarter in 2007/08. 


It was noted that there had been significant staff absence in the fourth quarter and this had impacted on the ability of the service to achieve its performance targets.  The Audit Manager reported that the five planned audits referred to in paragraph 6.3 of the report were all in progress but were unlikely to be completed until the end of the second week in April. 


The report also set out a draft protocol for reporting Internal Audit issues to the Committee.  The Committee was asked to approve the protocol.  Members were largely in support, subject to checks being made that there was no conflict with the Council's Constitution. 




(a)       that report 160/07 be noted; and


(b)       that the protocol for reporting internal audit issues to the Audit and Governance Committee be approved, subject to checks being made that there is no conflict with the Council's Constitution.
