To consider report 14/10 of the Head of Finance.
The Committee considered report 14/10 of the Head of Finance. This reported on the work of the council’s internal audit service during 2009/10 and advised on the overall adequacy and effectiveness of the internal control environment. The committee noted the Head of Finance’s unqualified opinion of satisfactory assurance with the council’s risk management, control, and governance processes. He believed the council had a sound system of internal control but found some weaknesses that might put some system objectives at risk. Service managers had welcomed the control improvements suggested by internal audit.
The Committee agreed with the Head of Finance that the internal audit team had performed well.
