Paxon provided fully outsourced internal audit services to a large metropolitan council in Perth, WA.
During this engagement, Paxon developed the strategic and internal audit plan for a 5 year period for Council.
This involved undertaking a risk setting strategy that assessed all business units within the City, identified high, medium and low risks and the appropriate controls associated with them.
Areas covered included operational/performance audits, financial audits, compliance audits (Regulation 17 and Regulation 5 reviews) and follow-up reviews.
The strategic audit plan ensured the City complied with the Local Government Act (1995) (WA), associated regulations, Department of Local Government and the guidelines provided by the Office of the Auditor General.
