Thank you to all that attended this session.
The SFHA commissioned internal audit guidance for its members. The guide focuses on providing advice to the governing body, audit committee members and senior staff within RSLs as to their roles and responsibilities within the internal audit function, and what they must do to ensure that this function is implemented and monitored effectively.
Up to date, sector specific guidance is long overdue and extremely timely, particularly given the Scottish Housing Regulator review of its Regulatory Framework this year, with a view to the new framework being in place in 2019. It is possible that, as a result, both internal audit - and audit committees - could become a compulsory requirement for RSLs.
This session provided delegates with the chance to hear from the author of the guidance , Caron Quinn and ask her directly any questions they might have.
