That the report be accepted.


The Internal Audit Manager presented the regular report showing progress against the Plan, final reports issued, action tracking, performance indicators and current investigations.


Since the last report, there were no Red (limited assurance) reports and only one Amber Red (some assurance) report on the loss of O Licence in Streetscene & Transportation.  Following concerns raised at the previous meeting, the number of overdue actions had been reviewed and raised with the Chief Officer Team for investigation, resulting in significant progress.  Whilst this was a positive outcome, the review had been time consuming for the Internal Audit team and reinforced the need for managers to keep their portfolio actions under regular review.


This action for managers would be picked up by the Chief Executive who said that the outcome demonstrated that many of the actions had in fact been completed but not confirmed as such.


Sally Ellis thanked officers for their work on this.  She queried why the Amber/Red report did not appear to be included on the relevant Overview & Scrutiny forward work programme and asked that the item be referred to ensure monitoring of progress on actions.  The Internal Audit Manager agreed to liaise with Overview & Scrutiny.


The recommendation was moved by Allan Rainford and seconded by Councillor Joe Johnson.
