Supplementary Table 6: Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations over the next three fiscal years

A. All upcoming Internal Audits over the next three fiscal years

A Service Level Agreement has been established between the Internal Audit Sector of the Office of the Comptroller General of Canada (OCG) and the federal regional development agencies (RDAs), including WD. This agreement became effective April 1, 2012, and details the provision of internal audit services by the OCG to the RDAs.

As a result of this agreement, in 2012 a RDA Risk-Based Audit Plan (RBAP) was developed for audits to be conducted in the 2012–13 fiscal year. In this plan, WD is included in the Audit of Monitoring and Reporting of Select Grants and Contributions Programs.

In 2013–14, the OCG will develop a RDA RBAP to identify audit priorities for the upcoming three fiscal years.

As they become available, all completed audit reports are accessible through WD’s website.
