Upcoming Internal Audits for the coming fiscal year

Internal audits

The following activities are included in the Risk-Based Audit Plan of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) for the period from 2016-17 to 2018-19. This plan is in the process of being updated and revised.

The updated plan will be tabled at SSHRC’s Independent Audit Committee on March 23, 2017, for committee review and approval by the President. The revised plan will outline the projects planned for the upcoming three years, based on the capacity of the SSHRC’s audit function, risk assessments of proposed audit projects, and management responses and action plans for prior audits for follow-up.

Projects undertaken in 2017-18 will depend on factors such as resources available to the audit function, the scope and complexity of projects, and the Agency’s emerging issues and priorities.

SSHRC’s Audit Reports are available on the SSHRC website.
