Internal Audit Function

The Group has an in-house Internal Audit Department known as Governance Advisory Department that reports directly to the AC. The AC is

-

Ascertained the extent of compliance with the established Group policies, procedures and statutory requirements;

-

Reviewed the system of internal controls and key operating processes based on the approved annual plan by adopting a risk-based

approach and recommended improvements to the existing system of controls; and

-

Reviewed related party transactions.

Arising from the above activities, Internal Audit reports, incorporating the audit finding, audit recommendation and management response were

issued to the AC. Follow-up audit was also conducted and the status of implementation on the agreed upon action plans were highlighted to

the AC.

The total cost incurred for the internal audit function for the financial year ended 31 October 2014 was approximately RM2.32 million.
