To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what criteria (a) his Department and (b) its public bodies use when deciding whether and when to hold an internal audit; and if he will make a statement.
Internal audit plans for the Treasury and its executive agencies are drawn up annually and reviewed as required through the year. They are based on a review of management risk assessments, discussions with senior managers, previous internal audit work and planned changes and developments, and also linked with the organisations' objectives. The plans are established in consultation with, and subject to approval by, the Accounting Officers, boards and the Audit Committees as appropriate.
