The Director of Resources submitted a report presenting the 3-year Strategic Internal Audit Plan for 2023/24 to 2025/26 for consideration and approval by Committee.


The Internal Audit Plan considers core, mandates, national and regional risks as identified in the Council’s risk register.  Members were informed that the plan remains flexible to respond to emerging risks the Council may face.


The Council’s 3-year Strategic Plan was annexed to the report, and it was noted that it would be continually reviewed.  It was acknowledged that a new Corporate Strategy will be produced after the elections when a new Council is formed.


A number of key performance indicators were outlined in the plan and these set clear expectations on the Internal Audit Service and enable the team to demonstrate the impact, effectiveness and compliance with the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS).




Approve the Strategic Internal Audit Plan 2023/24 to 2025/26 as attached in Appendix A to the report.
