2017 is all about interaction. The Internal Audit stream is looking forward to building relationships and sharing information. The day will focus on emerging internal audit trends, as well offer useful best practices and solutions, that will tackle common existing and emerging issues within the public sector and other industries.

The learning objectives of the Internal Audit stream are to offer participants:

  • the ability to provide leadership and representation in the internal audit community on emerging issues within the federal government's risk universe;
  • new tools and ideas to assess the effectiveness and adequacy of risk management, controls, and governance processes within their organization; and,
  • the means to build internal audit competencies and keep up with the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) education requirements through continuing professional development.

This Internal Audit session will provide an overview of the key drivers of uncertainty and the impact they have at all levels of government on accounting, financial reporting, internal controls, and information systems, and, most importantly people. While sharing his recent experience with uncertainty, Bailey Church will discuss changes in the public sector, the impact of uncertainty, and what it means from an internal audit perspective.

Established in 2007, departmental audit committees (DACs) are an integral part of the Government of Canada's efforts to ensure the rigorous stewardship and accountability of public funds across its operations. Composed of a majority of external members, DACs provide objective advice and recommendations to the deputy head regarding the sufficiency, quality and results of assurance engagements on the adequacy and functioning of the department's risk management, control and governance frameworks and processes (including accountability and auditing systems). DAC members play a critical role in supporting the deputy head in his or her role as accounting officer. To mark the 10th anniversary of the inception of DACs, guest speakers will share their experiences with these committees, and reflect on DACs' contributions to public administration now and in the future.
