Prudent, compliant, transparent management of funds is fundamental to responsible government; as such, resource management, in the broadest sense, has been an on-going area of focus of internal audit attention within the Department of National Defence. This audit is one of several recent Chief of Review Services initiatives examining funds management, procurement practices, and oversight and monitoring mechanisms relating to resource management. While other audits will report on management related to large, centrally managed budgets, this audit sought to provide assurance relating to the management of those funds devolved to organizations, particularly Units, Bases and Wings, to carry out their day-to-day activities. The annual budgets involved amount to over $1B and the need for enhanced control is essential.
