Report on the Audit of Compliance with Financial Policy in Departmental Legal Services Units - September 2014

7. Audit Opinion

Based on the audit findings, our opinion is that, overall DLSUs and DRSs are in compliance with financial management policy instruments of the Government of Canada and the Department. However, there are improvements that should be made with respect to IS transactions to ensure compliance with applicable financial management policy instruments. The improvements that should be made are as follows:

  • Develop and communicate a policy instrument to standardize how IS transactions should be processed; and
  • Include IS transactions in the Annual Account Verification Plan.
