critical/high priority in the report
• Our system also automatically puts on the executive
summary of the report all un- implemented
recommendations rated high in the previous audits.

Management Workshops
• The OIA has enforced the follow up on audit
recommendations to be a standing agenda item
on the annual financial management workshops.
• Status
office/department/Organ and discussed openly
with everybody.
• This gives individual responsible officers
determination to implement outstanding audit

D. Follow up using the Internal Audit
Progress Committee (IAPC)
• The IAPC usually writes to various Auditees on
the implementation of OIA recommendations
especially on critical/high recommendations.
• The OIA prepares at least once in a year a
comprehensive matrix on the status of all
outstanding recommendations for IAPC.
• IAPC also writes to Auditees as a follow-up after
discussing the matrix.

E. Follow up using the MK Insight
Audit Management System.
• The upgraded MK Insight version 10.0 has a
function that provides an auto reminder on the
implementation of audit recommendations.

mails and it will send an auto reminder as set up
in the system.

should report on implementation of recommendations.

to carryout quarterly budget performance audits and
directly present to Member States.
