The Work of Internal Audit
The Councils internal audit service in provided in-house by Birmingham Audit. The service is designed to support the Corporate Director of Resources and the Audit Committee to help demonstrate the highest standards of corporate governance, public accountability and transparency in the Council’s business. The Assistant Director Audit & Risk Management is responsible for providing this service.
Birmingham Audit has a rolling plan of audit activity. This is driven towards providing an independent opinion on the adequacy and effectiveness of the systems of internal control in place. Following completion of the plan, an overall assurance statement is provided based on the work that has been undertaken. This forms part of the Council's annual Statement of Internal Control.
Birmingham Audit is IIP accredited and all work is subject to IS09001:2008 and ISO 27001:2005 standards. Our brochure contains a full outline of our work:
