To receive the Internal Audit Plan for 2018-19 from the Head of the Devon Audit Partnership.
The Committee had before it a report * from the Head of Devon Audit Partnerships setting out the Internal Audit Plan for 2018-19 and seeking its approval.
The Deputy Head of the Devon Audit Partnership outlined the contents of the report by making reference to the fact that the plan needed to be flexible in order to change with shifting priorities and audit findings throughout the year. Core work would be streamlined to facilitate a review of a wider range of risks. Areas such as cyber security and transactional integrity would have a key focus. Over the next four years a lot would change in terms of the focus in internal audits. System walkthroughs would still be undertaken and if it was found that a system was doing what it was supposed to do and no issues had been identified then the focus of further work would change.
The officer was congratulated for the format of the report.
RESOLVED that the Internal Audit Plan for 2018-19 be approved.
(Proposed by the Chairman)
