This page shows the decisions made by any committees looking at the matter. This might include agreeing the Terms of Reference for the inquiry or deciding to hold a public consultation on the matter.
3.1 Gareth Watts provided an oral update
on progress against outstanding audit work. Fieldwork for the audit of
Members’ expenses had been completed and used by Audit Wales as part of their
audit of the Commission’s accounts. He would circulate a report to the
Committee once completed. He would also be working on a wider asset management
review as well as an audit to provide assurances required by the Chief
Executive as Accounting Officer relating to the Welsh Consolidated Fund. He had
also agreed with the Chair that he would present an update on the
implementation of audit recommendations to the Committee at its July meeting.
3.2 The Chair invited Gareth Watts to
outline his assurances in relation to the Annual Report and Accounts. He confirmed the moderate level of assurance
on governance, risk management and internal audit provided in his Annual Report
and Opinion in April. He confirmed he was content from an internal audit
perspective that the accounts could be signed.
