The Internal Audit and Compliance division is constantly working to improve its core values and to be a reliable partner to the Company’s management to achieve the goals set out by the board.
The division has set its six-year 2013 – 2018 Audit Plan, placing a schedule of prioritized audit work based on a company-wide risk assessment. The audit plan for the period in review has been fully implemented with follow-up to ensure completeness is continuously implemented. A status report on the progress made in implementing the audit plan was drafted, containing updates on audit findings that have been submitted to and adopted by the management. The report provides an overview on implementation of action plan in resolving audit findings for period in review.
