Additional documents:


The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 required the Council to “undertake an effective internal audit to evaluate the effectiveness of its risk management, control and governance processes, taking into account public sector internal auditing standards or guidance”. The Audit Charter provided a framework for the operation of the Internal Audit service and was required by the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS) which required the Charter to be approved by the ‘Board’, which for the Council’s purpose was the Audit & Accounts Committee.


The Internal Audit Charter had been reviewed to ensure continued compliance with the requirements of the PSIAS effective from March 2017 and was attached at appendix 1 of the report.



That the Committee approved the Council’s Internal Audit Charter.
