Internal Audit Progress Report

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No


The Committee received the regular report on the work of the Internal Audit Service, including key findings and issues of concern. In presenting the report, the Head of Internal Audit advised that it was anticipated that the service would only be able to provide limited assurance at year-end, given the issues set out in the report and the restrictions on the work that the service has been able to carry out. It was confirmed that the Internal Audit Service was on target to deliver its full plan of work by the end of the year.


In considering the report, members of the committee noted the large number of temporary and agency staff being used in some areas of social care, and also noted that the review of the Highways Asset Management System (HAMS) did not encompass consideration of the relationship to the Transport Asset Management Plan (TAMP).


Resolved: That the report be noted.
