Internal Audit

The internal audit function has been created to provide professional expertise to Congregations, Presbyteries and Synod to support them in fulfilling their stewardship responsibilities in relation to financial and non-financial risk management.

We hope you will find this initiative of value and that you will welcome Internal Audit into your communities.

An Internal Audit Charter has been created and approved by the Synod Audit Committee to provide the functional and organisational framework within which the internal audit is to operate. This document sets out the nature, role, status and responsibility of the internal audit function and operation. At all times the internal audit function and operation will be guided by the principles of the theological reflection and the terms of government as set out in the preamble to the charter and in accordance with the Basis of Union.

The internal audit plan is achieved by liaising and visiting Presbyteries and Congregations to review and provide guidance and support on their financial and operational controls.
