2018 to 2019 Report on key compliance attributes of the internal audit function at Environment and Climate Change Canada – January 2020 update to Table 1

The Treasury Board (TB) Directive on Internal Audit requires that departments with an internal audit function publish departmental internal audit performance results in the form of key compliance attributes. The objective of publishing these results is to provide pertinent information to stakeholders, such as Canadians and parliamentarians, on the professionalism, performance and impact of the internal audit function in departments. Table 1 lists ECCC’s audit engagements for 2018 to 2020, with a link to where the reports have been published. As per the TB directive, Table 1 was updated in January 2020.

Table 1: status of audits planned for tabling from 2018 to 2020 and of audits with outstanding management action plans – updated January 2020

Note: additions and adjustments may have been made to the timing of the internal audits included in the Risk-based audit plan 2018 to 2019, to address emerging risks and departmental priorities.
