AbstractThe chart below depicts those audits that will commence or will be completed in 2011-12; others will be completed in the following year as indicated in Section 3.5. There are four audits which have not yet been completed by the end of 2010-11 that are planned to be presented to the Audit Committee in the first half of the fiscal year, i.e., the audits of the Financial Management Control Framework (Budgeting, Revenue and EDP Purchases), Human Resources Planning, Follow-up to the 2007-08 Audit of the Management of IT Security and the Follow-up to the Audit of the Industrial Research Assistance Program. Continuous audit testing for Canada Economic Action Plan funds received in 2009-10 and 2010-11 (Industrial Research Assistance Program, Modernizing Federal Laboratories and Federal Contaminated Sites Assistance Program) will be completed. Continuous audits of these areas and others were introduced in 2009-10 as a means for ensuring audit results obtained in previous years remain relevant for the purposes of supporting the Chief Audit Executive’s annual assurance reporting on the adequacy and effectiveness of NRC’s risk management, control and governance processes. While audits have been conducted since 2006-07 in all three tiers of NRC’s audit universe, relatively smaller coverage has been provided to date in the Scientific and Innovation Activities portion. These audits that were to have commenced 2011-12 are on hold pending the further development and refinement of NRC’s new Strategy as well as confirmation that funding for the Technology Clusters will continue beyond 2011-12.
