Upcoming internal audits for the coming fiscal year

The following activities are included in the NSERC Risk-Based Audit Plan for the period from 2016-17 to 2018-19. This plan is in the process of being updated and revised.

The updated plan will be tabled at NSERC's Independent Audit Committee on March 23, 2017 for review and for approval by the President. The revised plan will outline the projects planned for the upcoming three years, based on the capacity of the Council's audit function, risk assessments of proposed audit projects, and management responses and action plans for prior audits for follow-up. Projects undertaken in 2017-18 will depend on factors such as resources available to the audit function, the scope and complexity of projects, and the Council's emerging issues and priorities.

Additional information on the NSERC's Internal Audits is available on the NSERC website.
