Report of the Chief Internal Auditor detailing progress of the 2018-19 Internal Audit report.
The Committee received and noted the report of the Chief Internal Auditor detailing the Internal Audit Progress Report 2018-19.
The Committee particularly noted the audit that had taken place relating to Procurement Compliance and Payables which had been given No Assurance. The Committee noted that there was an appropriate framework in place which was law compliant however there were specific areas of compliance that were not being dealt with which required attention by Management. To that end the Committee noted that Management had welcomed the audit and the need for improvements accepted, additions had been made to the strategic risk register and disciplinary processes were a potential consequence of non-compliance and the service were returning to the Council from Capita albeit there would be no changes in policies or the framework that was in place.
