Internal Audit Progress Report

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No


The Committee considered a report setting out progress and the outcomes of the work for the period to 31 March 2018.


The Committee raised a number of issues around the referencing of background papers in reports; the relationship between Deloitte and Local Pensions Partnerships Ltd (LPPL); residual risk and the link between the work of the Internal Audit Service and Overview and Scrutiny.


In response to the above, it was recognised that background papers should always be properly referenced in all reports. The Chair, as the County Council's representative on the Board of LPPL, would discuss the relationship of Deloitte, as the internal auditor to LPPL, with the Council, with the Chair of LPPL's Audit Committee and report back at the next meeting.


It was noted that County Councillors were not routinely asked if they had any issues relating to specific areas of audit work and the question was raised how members are informed of the matters arising from internal audit work. It was suggested that consideration could be given to how areas of work identified by the Internal Audit Service might be included in the work plans of the relevant Overview and Scrutiny Committees and officers agreed that proposals would be brought back to the Committee in due course.


Resolved: - That the report, now presented, be noted.
