Annual Grants Certification Report 2019/20

Report of the Managing Director


The Managing Director submitted a report (previously circulated) to present the Annual Grants Certification Report and the results of the external audit testing.


It was reported that the external audit work undertaken by Ernst and Young (EY) had identified that the Housing Subsidy claim certified did not require a qualification letter although there were three minor errors that amounted to £12.48 in total and no amendment was made to the claim.


It was also reported that EY had identified two exceptions with regard to the Housing Pooling return; the Teachers Pension return was submitted on time and EY identified exceptions totalling £150.72 due to four members of staff being included in incorrect bandings; and the Homes England Compliance Audit Checklist for 2019/20 was also completed by EY with no issues.


EY did not identify any significant issues that required being brought to the attention of Members from any of these claims.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
