This report sets out the reports to be received by the Audit & Governance Committee for the 2020/21 municipal year.
The Head of Audit and Management Assurance presented a report, a copy of which had been circulated to each Member and a copy of which appears as Appendix 'F' to these Minutes in the Minute Book.
The presented Forward Plan set out the reports to be received by the Audit & Governance Committee for the 2020/21 municipal year.
It was noted and agreed that the requested further report on ‘BH Live’ should be brought to the Committee in the New Year when ready rather than fixing a definite meeting date at this stage.
It was also noted, as agreed earlier in the meeting, that a further report on implementation of the action plan arising from the Annual Governance Statement would be brought to the Committee in January 2021.
The Chairman reminded members that he had recently emailed them asking for suggestions for additional subjects for consideration in more depth at the more informal ‘extra’ meetings of the Committee. This had now become an important and very useful method of working for the Committee and the opportunity was approaching to build these items in to the new Forward Plan for 2021/22.
RESOLVED that the Audit & Governance Committee approves the forward plan set out at Appendix A.
[Post meeting note. It was subsequently agreed after discussion with the Chairman of the Committee, and with his agreement, that the progress update requested during consideration of the report on the Annual Governance Statement be submitted to the Committee at its meeting in March 2021. This to align the report more meaningfully with the revised statutory reporting cycle as amended in response to the Covid19 pandemic.]
