Supplementary Information Tables for Report on Plans and Priorities 2014-15: Upcoming internal audits and evaluations over the next three fiscal years

The following activities are included in the CNSC Risk-Based Audit Plan for the period from 2013–14 to 2015–16. This plan is in the process of being reviewed and updated.

The updated plan will be submitted to the CNSC’s Audit Committee in March 2014 for review and recommendation for approval by the CNSC’s president. It is based on the current capacity of the CNSC’s audit function, risk assessments of proposed audit projects, and management responses and action plans for prior audits for follow-up. The revised plan will outline the projects planned for the upcoming three years. Projects undertaken depend on factors such as resources available to the audit function, the scope and complexity of projects, and the CNSC’s emerging issues and priorities.

The CNSC has an Audit Committee with three members who are external to the government and two members internal to the Commission. The Committee is chaired by an external member.

Additional information on the CNSC’s Internal Audits is available on the CNSC website.

An evaluation of the CNSC’s performance measurement framework was completed this year. As a result of this evaluation, CNSC management has directed that the Program Alignment Architecture be reviewed and revised as necessary by the end of fiscal year 2013–14. This will likely result in a significant revision of the current five-year evaluation plan.
