That the report be accepted.


The Internal Audit, Performance & Risk Manager presented the regular update on progress against the Plan, final reports issued, action tracking, performance indicators and current investigations.  Since the last report, no Red (limited assurance) reports had been issued and details were shared on the three Amber/Red (some assurance) reports.  On action tracking, there was an increase in the number of overdue actions and a process had been agreed for regular reporting to the Chief Officer Team and quarterly attendance by a Principal Auditor to progress the matter.  Performance indicators for the service generally remained positive, however there was some impact from external factors.  An update was also given on movements within the current Plan which was progressing well.


Sally Ellis asked that information on Amber/Red reports include details of reporting arrangements and frequency.  The Internal Audit, Performance & Risk Manager agreed to refer Amber/Red reports (in addition to Red reports) to the relevant Overview & Scrutiny Committee and would ensure that this was actioned.


The recommendation was moved by Allan Rainford and seconded by Councillor Janet Axworthy.
