Statement of Assurance

We have completed the internal audit of the PeopleSoft Human Resources Management System (PeopleSoft). The overall objective of this audit was to review and assess the adequacy of the framework in place for the system’s operations, maintenance, and enhancements and to recommend improvements.

The internal audit was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) Policy on Internal Audit and the Institute of Internal Auditors’ Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. Footnote 1 The audit team assessed the management control framework against criteria documented in TBS and departmental policies as well as Control Objectives for Information and Related technologies (CobiT), an information technology (IT) framework and supporting toolset that allows directors to bridge the gap between control requirements, technical issues, and business risks.

In our professional judgment, sufficient and appropriate audit procedures have been conducted and evidence gathered to support the accuracy of the conclusions reached and contained in this report. The conclusions were based on a comparison of the situations as they existed at the time of the audit and against the audit criteria. It should be noted that the conclusions are only applicable for the areas examined.
