Members considered a report that provided an update on progress made in delivering the internal audit work plan for 2019/20 and on current counter fraud activity.  As part of the work undertaken, the Council’s Internal Audit Charter had been reviewed and Members’ approval to a number of small changes was sought.  The proposed revised Charter was set out at Annex 4 to the report and a tracked changes version was tabled at the meeting so that Members could appreciate clearly the changes proposed.


Further to the report, clarity was sought and assurances were given relating to the membership of the Veritau Board and any potential conflict of interest for Section 151 Officer. It was noted that the Interim Section 151 Officer was not currently a member of the Board.
