EA Highlights Importance of Audit and Risk Assurance
Friday 20 December 2019
The Education Authority’s Audit and Risk Assurance Committee (ARAC) highlighted the important work of the Committee and the Audit Team in delivering effective governance for EA.
In a presentation to Department of Education Officials, the ARAC Chair, Edgar Jardine, set out the key focus of their work including corporate risk, fraud, financial management, child protection and cyber security to name a few.
The positive impact of the work of ARAC is clear. It ensures there are adequate risk management processes across EA and that the organisation meets best practice standards. The challenges ahead include financial recovery and transformation of services for EA and the growing demand for services which are not matched by available resources.
The Audit and Risk Assurance Committee will continue to ensure that EA works to the highest levels of accountability.
