The group will be the key way for CIPFA to connect with the internal audit community.
The key activities of the group include:
The group is an advisory group and does not have a decision making role. CIPFA’s role as the standard setter for internal audit in local government is supported by the Internal Audit Standards Advisory Board, co-operating with the other standard setters for internal audit in the public services to support the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS). The Special Interest Group does have a role in supporting CIPFA in its role as the standard setter by providing a forum for raising issues of interest to internal auditors in the practical application of PSIAS.
The group is supported by Diana Melville, Lead Advisor for the CIPFA Better Governance Forum.
