Internal Audit Annual Report 2022/23


The Committee received a report form the Internal Audit Manager on the Annual Internal Audit Report for 2022/23.


The Committee asked if it would be possible to know if there were any actions that had been identified by audits that had not been carried out and whether the officers responsible for those actions could be invited to attend a future Committee meeting. The Chair confirmed that it was within the Committee’s remit to request specific officers to attend meetings.


The Committee queried whether there was a strategy to prevent risk and were advised that it was not always possible to prevent a risk but actions can put in place to mitigate risk.


The Committee resolved to:

  1. Note the Annual Internal Audit Report for 2022/23.

2.    Note the annual audit opinion on the Council’s internal control environment, risk management and governance arrangements
