• If the implementation is low, the issue is put as
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.

C. Follow-up at Financial
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.
• This will be linked to various managers’ outlook
mails and it will send an auto reminder as set up
in the system.

should report on implementation of recommendations.
• This is mainly on both internal and external audit reports
presented to Policy Organs.

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