Auditor General's Findings

Despite being the subject of the Compliance Audit Report for the period FY2014/15, the Audit Committee of the MEGJC continues to be non-functional as no meetings were held for the financial year 2016/2017. Therefore, we were unable to determine the extent of independent oversight of the work of the Internal Audit Unit to ensure the scope and audit approach are relevant to monitor the MEGJC’s systems of internal controls.

Further, we saw no evidence that the Chief Internal Auditor submitted written reports to the Accounting Officer, and only one quarterly report was submitted to the Financial Secretary.
