The emphasis of this audit was to ensure compliance to current procedures and to make recommendations that seek to address any weaknesses in the short term, thus avoiding where possible any major changes.
The objective of this audit was to provide an assurance on the adequacy and effectiveness of the controls established for dealing with asylum seekers to the UK including the assignment of, and payments for, emergency accommodation.
