Harpole Parish Council Standing Orders
These Financial Regulations, adopted by the Council at its meeting held on 18 May 2020 govern conduct of financial management by the council and may only be amended or varied by resolution of the council. Financial regulations are one of the council's three governing policy documents providing procedural guidance for members and officers. Financial regulations must be observed in conjunction with the council's standing orders and any individual financial regulations relating to contracts.
- The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 require Councils to undertake an annual review of their internal control arrangements and report the outcome of the review to an appropriate meeting of the Council. This review should include a review of the effectiveness of the Council's system for the management of risk. Regulations require a "smaller relevant body" to undertake an annual review of internal audit arrangements. This report examines the current situation and any suggestions for improvement.
