Hi there,

Thank you for your message. I'm interested in the inspection schedule identified in Department Order 606: Internal Inspections Program ( I've attached a screenshot of the relevant section, which states that the Deputy Director is responsible for establishing inspection schedules.

Thank you very much for your time. Please let me know if further clarification is necessary.

Best wishes,

Provided in the attached are schedules covering 2011-2015, which is the period of our current audit process. Prior to that there are not records.
