The Committee will receive the indicative Audit Committee Work Plan for 2019/20.
The Committee received a report providing the indicative work plan for the Committee for its proposed scheduled meetings for the remainder of the 2019/20 municipal year and for 2020/21.
The Head of Internal Audit and Corporate Anti-Fraud commented that his final Internal Audit Annual Report would be submitted to the meeting to be held on the 22nd July, 2019.
The Chair referred to an article that had appeared in the Barnsley Chronicle on the 31st May, 2019 which publicised the fact that the Council’s IT Service had designed in-house income management software that was to be rolled out to local authorities across the country. This software would not only save the authority on software costs alone but would also generate income from sales/licensing.
(i) that the core work plan for 2019/20 and 2020/21 meetings of the Audit Committee be approved and reviewed on a regular basis; and
(ii) that staff within the Council’s IT Service be congratulated for their hard work and dedication in developing this unique Income Management System software.
