Report of Director of Resources enclosed.


The Director of Resources submitted a report for information providing the committee with an independent opinion on the overall adequacy and effectiveness of the Council’s framework of governance, risk management and internal control; including a summary of the internal audit work that supports the Opinion: any impairments or restrictions in scope of work undertaken; and the outcomes of the self-assessment that the audit work undertaken was in conformance with the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS) for 2021/22.


The overall opinion of the Internal Audit Manager for the period 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022 was substantial.


Committee noted that although the audit work that supported the opinion had been delivered in accordance with the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards, and there were no significant areas of non-conformance, that an improvement plan was in place to ensure full compliance.
