Report of the Director of Finance & Transformation / Section 151 Officer
The Committee received the report as set out on pages 11-18 of the agenda, which asked it to note the progress made in delivering the 2018/19 Audit Plan and to provide an update in relation to the implementation of internal audit recommendations.
Mr Persaud from CW Audit Services provided the Committee with a brief summary of the Audit Progress Report, which showed that of the five audits completed during the third quarter, four had been given significant assurance and one had been given moderate assurance. It was confirmed that with regard to the moderate assurance opinion in relation to Housing Repairs and Voids, responses received from management to address the remaining recommendations had been positive. The Committee requested that an update in relation to the implementation of these remaining recommendations be provided to the next meeting of the Committee in March 2019.
Overall, the Committee expressed a high level of satisfaction with the current progress made in delivering the 2018/19 Audit Plan. In particular, staff were commended on the achievement of reducing the number of actions still to be completed to 15, all of which were less than 3 months overdue.
It was moved by the Chair, seconded by J W Boyce and
UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED THAT:
The contents of the report and appendix be noted.
