Members considered the report of the Deputy Chief Executive and City Treasurer and Head of Internal Audit and Risk Management that informed the Committee that in accordance with Public Sector Internal Audit Standards the Head of Audit and Risk Management must “establish and maintain a system to monitor the disposition of results communicated to management; and a follow-up process to monitor and ensure that management actions have been effectively implemented or that senior management has accepted the risk of not taking action”.  For Manchester City Council this system included reporting to directors and their management teams, Strategic Management Team, Executive Members and Audit Committee.
