Committee Chair Castagna commented on the great work that Madina Sabirova, chief audit executive in the internal audit office, has done going over the Enterprise Risk Management Program. She noted that the key to this new plan is that it is embedded into daily, weekly, and monthly activities. Ms. Sabirova provided an update and shared details about the new process. She reported that it consists of four phases that are interconnected. Ms. Sabirova reported that three phases have been completed as planned. She described the program as having multiple levels that increase accountability by having designated risk areas with key risk indicators. She outlined goals for the program, one of which would be to use a data-driven approach and to be proactive in risk management and perhaps identify emerging risks on the horizon. Ms. Sabirova presented a summary of the 2023 Audit Plan noting that a risk-based approach was utilized to develop the plan. She shared that audit plan projects will focus on a more integrated audit type and approach. A copy of the presentation and supporting materials were filed with the minutes.
