Internal Audit Framework

Overview

Welcome to National Framework Partnership’s Internal Audit Framework. By choosing our services, you can expect the following benefits:

Independent and Objective Assessments: Pre-qualified Internal Auditors provide independent and objective assessments of your organisation’s internal controls, processes, and operations. They help to identify areas of risk, inefficiencies, and non-compliance, enabling you to make informed decisions and improve overall governance and accountability.

Compliance with Regulatory Requirements: Internal Auditors ensure that your organisation complies with relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards. They review policies, procedures, and operations to ensure adherence to legal and regulatory frameworks. Their expertise helps to mitigate risks associated with non-compliance and enhances your organisation’s reputation and public trust.

Risk Identification and Mitigation: Conducting comprehensive risk assessments to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities. They provide recommendations and strategies to mitigate these risks, safeguarding your organisation’s assets, reputation, and operations. Their insights enable proactive risk management and help you prioritise resources effectively.

Efficiency and Process Improvements: Analysis of your organisation’s processes and systems to identify opportunities for improvement. By assessing operational efficiencies, identifying cost-saving measures, and providing recommendations for streamlining processes, their insights can contribute to enhanced operational effectiveness and resource optimisation.

Enhanced Financial Management: Ensuring the accuracy and integrity of your financial information by reviewing financial controls, assessing compliance with accounting standards, and providing recommendations for improved financial management. Their expertise helps strengthen financial reporting and accountability within your organisation.

Call-Off Process

How can I use this Framework?

Our simple step process allows for both Direct Selection or Mini-Competition. Further information can be found below. Please note that Clients may enter into a contract for any duration that best allows for the performance of the requirement to be achieved.

Direct Selection

With the Direct Selection method, you may select the contractor who is ranked number 1, or any other Contractor/Consultant on the following basis:

  • Where you have an existing relationship with the Contractor/Consultant.
  • Where the Call Off has substantial similarities to a previous project the Contractor/Consultant was involved with (under this Framework Agreement or not).
  • For reasons of urgency, where it is not reasonably practical to award the Call-Off Contract by way of a Mini-Competition.
  • Capability Criteria determining that only one framework appointee is capable of carrying out the Call-Off Contract.
  • Where you are able to determine which Contractor/Consultant will provide the most economically advantageous offer.
  • Where a Contractor/Consultant has introduced the site.
  • Rank based on filter categorisation by region and/or contract value, of which the supplier has pre-selected.

Mini Competition

Our Mini-Competition process lets you expand beyond the framework’s original specification to meet your specific requirements. The framework partners from the relevant lot are invited to tender (where capable). This process typically takes 2-4 weeks. The capability criteria can be defined by the following:

  • The contractors capability to carry out a project of the size and complexity of the proposed project.
  • The contractors capability to carry out works and services in the locality of the proposed project.
  • The contractors financial stability and standing.
  • The contractors health and safety record.
  • The contractors capacity, taking into account the value of Works and Services already awarded to it under the Framework Agreement.
