Assurance in the Public Sector

Revisit some of the fundamental principles underlying robust assurance and establish the extent to which the assurances in your organisation meet these. In particular, develop ways of assessing the effectiveness of:
•How line management assurances are obtained and on what topics
•How other assurance and compliance functions play a role in supporting the assurance picture
•How Internal Audit should leverage existing assurances and the role it can play in drawing attention to potential blind spots and pitfalls in the provision of assurance

Learning Outcomes:
•How the Internal Audit planning process might be focused to deal with assurance gaps
•How other assurance and compliance functions might further step up their role as key assurance providers
•How assurances from multiple sources might be more routinely and consistently pulled together for review by senior management and the Audit Committee
