The committee considered the report of the audit manager on the work of the council’s internal audit team during the year 2012/13. The audit manager gave an unqualified opinion of satisfactory assurance to the council’s risk management, control, and governance processes, and confirmed that there was a sound system of internal control. Where internal audit had identified weaknesses, the team had agreed improvement actions with service managers.
The committee noted that the audit manager was pleased with the internal audit team’s performance during the year; the committee concurred and congratulated the manager and her team.
RESOLVED: to note the internal audit annual report for 2012/13 and congratulate the audit manager and her team on their performance during the year.
