Internal Audit Department
About Internal Audit
Internal Audit is the cornerstone of good corporate governance in organisations and can play an important role to improve management and accountability, both financial and non–financial.
It provides insight into the culture, policies, procedures, and aids management oversight by verifying internal controls such as operating effectiveness, risk mitigation controls, and compliance with any relevant laws or regulations.
Within the City, the purpose of this department is to:
- ensure governance and compliance by departments by implementing risk based internal audit;
- ensure CoE activities meet the legal requirements of performance information auditing;
- provide governance, risk and compliance management assurance services to the municipality;
- provide the financial risk management services including insurance services.
