Internal Audit

Internal Audit is an independent and objective review function set up to provide assurance to the Accounting Officer on the adequacy and effectiveness of the Department of Health’s system of internal controls.

The Internal Audit Unit also operates as a resource for Department of Health Managers through its analysis and appraisal of Departmental controls systems.

It comprises an Internal Audit Committee and an Internal Audit Unit. The Audit Committee meets 4 times per year and approves the Annual Work Programme and Annual Report of the Internal Audit Unit. It also considers draft Internal Audit Reports before these are sent to the Accounting Officer. Internal Audit Reports are also made available to the Comptroller and Auditor General’s Office.
