Note: Some audits originally planned for 2008-09 were cancelled because they had not been identified through a risk-based planning process, and a risk-based planning process completed in spring 2008 did not identify as them as priorities. Audit work then focused on projects identified in the Risk Base Audit Plan 2008-09 to 2010-11. The discontinued audit projects were the following: Follow-up Audit of Information Security; Official Languages Follow-up Assessment; Temporary Help Services; Follow-up audit of Pay and Benefits; Promotional Activities; Compliance to Network Wireless Access Policy; Section 33 Financial Administration Act Processes and Control; and Management of Capital Assets.
