Audit program

The audit program was originally developed following a risk profiling exercise for Council facilitated by HLB Mann Judd, Council’s internal audit firm, and involving a number of key staff from Council’s various business units. The program is reviewed annually to ensure that it is still relevant and efforts are being invested into areas that will receive the most benefit from review.
