Report of Chief Internal Auditor detailing the Internal Audit Plan 2017/18, attached.
The Committee considered the report detailing a draft Annual Internal Audit Plan for 2017/18 as detailed in the appendix to the report. The Committee noted that with effect from 1st April 2017 the internal audit and counter fraud function was being delivered as a shared service with Portsmouth City Council under the direction and control of the shared Chief Internal Auditor (the Chief Internal Auditor for Portsmouth City Council). As this was a new arrangement the 2017/18 Annual Audit Plan was presented as a draft plan that would be extended during Quarter 1 and submitted to a future meeting of the Committee for final ratification in order to allow the Chief Internal Auditor to accurately assess the needs of the Council following discussions with the senior management team and Members.
RESOLVED: that the draft Annual Internal Audit Plan for 2017/18 as detailed in the appendix to the report be approved.
