The internal control questionnaire focuses on control activities and includes process maps of all significant financial business cycles.

When completing the enclosed questions, please refer to the process maps to understand the context in which the questions are being asked and how your response contributes towards determining the state of the internal control environment.

The questions should be answered in relation to financial practices for the 2020-2021 financial year to date.

We request that your completed questionnaire be submitted by 28 May 2021.
