Background Information: In accordance with the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards the Head of Internal Audit (HIA) provides a written report to those charged with governance. This is timed to support the Annual Governance Statement (AGS), which is also being presented to this committee. The HIA provides an opinion on the overall adequacy and effectiveness of both the organisation’s internal control environment, and the risk management framework. This is based on work undertaken by Internal Audit, and other independent assurance work. Periodic updates are also provided to the Committee throughout the year.
