Supplementary Information Tables for Report on Plans and Priorities 2015-16: 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 2015–16 to 2017–18. This plan is in the process of being finalized.

The updated plan was tabled at the CNSC's Audit Committee on March 16, 2015 for review by the CNSC's audit committee. It will be sent to the president for final approval in April 2015. 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.
