Internal Audit Recommendations Follow up

Report of the Head of Audit and Risk Management.


The Committee received a report of the Head of Internal Audit and Risk Management which provided an update on the outcome of a recent follow-up exercise, which had focussed on red and amber priority recommendations due for implementation by 30th September 2016.


In respect of a red report on the Police’s Uniform Management Services, the Assistant Commissioner advised that the stock take and audit were now complete and a meeting with procurement had been planned for later today.  The Assistant Commissioner advised that a new contract would be in place by April 2017 but, due to staff shortages, it had not been possible to action this quicker.


In response to some further queries raised by the Police Performance and Resource Management Sub Committee, Members noted that the issues in respect of seized cash and goods had been resolved and there would be an update on IT and disaster recovery in the next Internal Audit Update report.


In respect of slippage of implementation of recommendations by agreed target dates, the Chairman reiterated and Members agreed that all slippages required a robust explanation and, should the slippage continue, the responsible Chief Officer would be accountable to the Audit and Risk Management Committee.


RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
