What is internal audit?
The role of internal audit is to provide independent assurance that an organisation's risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively.
Every Council is required to undertake an effective internal audit.
‘A council in England is responsible for ensuring that its financial management is adequate and effective. It must have a sound system of internal control that facilitates the performance of its statutory functions and powers and includes arrangements for internal audit and the management of risk. A council in England must conduct a review of the effectiveness of its system of internal control at least once a year’
‘Statutory responsibility for the handling of all financial transactions rests with the council as a whole.’
