The Internal Audit Manager introduced the Internal Audit Progress Report 2020/21. Appendix 1 of the report provided a summary of the progress against the Internal Audit Annual Plan as at November 2020.
As a result of the Audit Plan not having been agreed until September, no individual assignment reports had yet been finalised at this stage.
Internal Audit had assessed the extent to which previous internal audit recommendations had been implemented. The report showed that 18 recommendations had been implemented and that 40 remained outstanding, with slippage most recently due to Covid-19.
In response to a query relating to priorities Mr Harrison undertook to provide further explanation of how and why recommendations were prioritised. Members raised a further question relating to the Lakes Services Moorings and Encroachments, to which the Finance Lead Specialist undertook to provide a written response to update Members.
No Member having raised concern when asked by the Chairman, it was
RESOLVED – That the following be noted:-
(1) the progress achieved in 2020/21 in delivering the Audit Plan and the outcomes of completed audit reviews, as set out in Appendix 1 to the report; and
