George, Dr DT to ask the Minister of Finance
With reference to the 2019-20 Annual Report of the Financial Intelligence Centre what are the reasons that there were numerous internal control deficiencies identified by the Auditor-General?
The FIC received an unqualified audit report with no findings (“clean audit report”) and there were no internal control deficiencies identified.
The Audit Report indicates:
“The matters reported below are limited to the significant internal control deficiencies that resulted in the annual performance report and the findings on compliance with legislation included in this report.”
And below it recorded:
“I did not identify any significant deficiencies in internal control.”
