Regardless of scale and size, NGOs face different kinds of risks. Establishing internal control mechanism can effectively mitigate these risks, and protect the organization from potential damages.

The Council has collaborated with EY and published earlier the Internal Control Toolkit for Small Non-Governmental Organizations, providing a framework on internal controls for small NGOs. It focuses on supporting the development and review of existing practices.

To facilitate the application of the toolkit, EY is going to hold a workshop in August for concerned agency members, specifically highlighting the principles of internal control, and four selected risks and control processes. There will be group discussion during the workshop, where participants can share their experience and learning on internal control related issues.
