Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The Committee considered the Audit Recommendation Tracker report by the Chief Executive in respect of actions taken to address internal and external audit recommendations (circulated previously).
The Committee noted the following updates:
· 13 recommendations had been included in table B (recommendations completed since the last meeting of the Governance Committee)
· Table C detailed 8 recommendations for which time extensions were being requested. The Tracker had been updated with a more comprehensive set of notes.
· There were a few recommendations with zero, or low percentage complete figures. It was noted that these were low priority recommendations which would be followed up as part of a further DAP audit.
Councillor Walker passed on her congratulations to the SMT and staff for managing to reduce the list of recommendations requiring extensions considering the demands on the Authority over the past 18 months.
(a) that the time extensions requested in the Audit Recommendation Tracker be approved; and
(b) that the Audit Recommendation Tracker be noted.
