Internal Audit Plan Report 2018/19 - Shared Internal Audit Services (SIAS)

Decision Maker: Audit Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Shared Internal Audit Service (SIAS) submitted a report which detailed the proposed Hertsmere Borough Council Internal Audit Plan for 2018/19. This Plan set out the programme of audit work for the year ahead and formed part of the Council’s assurance framework. In presenting the report, the SIAS Audit Manager highlighted that in line with other partners there had been a 10% reduction in the number of days allocated.  This had been achieved through reducing contingency and reductions across the Audit Plan as a whole.  The number of days allocated remained at the upper end for a district and borough council and this was in line with previous agreements.


It was noted that the Internal Audit Plan for 2018/19 had already been given preliminary provisional approval by Officers so that delivery could begin due to the timing of the Audit Committee meetings.


Members queried the methodology used for the measurement of Client Satisfaction performance objective and were informed that this was based on the results of customer satisfaction surveys issued with final audit reports, with the SIAS Audit Manager actively investigating any areas which performed below average.


RESOLVED that the Hertsmere Borough Council Internal Audit Plan for 2018/19 be approved.
