As the third line of defense in risk management, the Internal Audit Function’s role is to provide an objective and independent assurance and consultancy services for PT Adaro Energy Tbk and its subsidiaries in the areas of governance, risk management and control, to improve the company’s operations and add value.

The Internal Audit Function directly reports to the President Director, who has delegated the Internal Audit Charter to the Internal Audit Function as a mandate to perform and execute its duties and responsibilities. The Internal Audit Charter was signed by the President Director, Vice President Director and the Board of Commissioners in November 2017 as an update to the 2013’s Internal Audit Charter.

In December 2020, Internal Audit Function in PT Adaro Indonesia and PT Saptaindra Sejati were established. The subsidiaries’ Internal Audit Functions report to their respective President Director and coordinates with AE’s Internal Audit Function.

The Internal Audit’s practices are based on the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing issued by the Institute of Internal Audit (IIA).

Annual Audit Plan

To provide optimum benefits with the available resources, the Internal Audit Function selects objects to be included in an annual audit plan based on risk priorities by considering the risk profile of all strategic business units. Before it is finalized, the annual audit plan is presented to the Board of Directors and Audit Committee to ensure that the plan is aligned with the company’s strategy and has addressed their concerns.

In 2020, there were 542 audit objects in audit universe. The Internal Audit Function has completed a total of nine audit and consulting reports with more comprehensive audit coverage. AE’s audit covered five of the 41 strategic business units of the Adaro Group and five of 29 risk types.

Implementation of corrective actions

Each audit report includes recommendations or corrective actions agreed with the relevant managements.

The recommendations will only provide value if implemented; therefore, the implementation is monitored and reported to the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis. The number of corrective actions implemented by the management is one of the Internal Audit Function’s key performance indicators (KPIs).

The managements of the strategic business units are active in implementing the corrective actions recommended by the Internal Audit Function. In 2020, 152 corrective actions had been fully implemented, or 86% (target 85%) of the total corrective actions that were due by December 2020.

Review of the internal control system effectiveness

The Internal Audit Function rates the adequacy of controls implemented by management to mitigate risks and shows this in each audit report submitted to the Board of Directors, Board of Commissioners the Audit Committee and related management personnel. The Internal Audit Function has completed nine audit reports covering five strategic business units. Based on our review of the effectiveness of three lines in risk management, it can be concluded that the internal control system in the Adaro Group is working as intended.

Use of information technology

To facilitate its activity, the Internal Audit function has been using information technology as needed, such as for working papers, internal audit portal for knowledge management, timesheets, corrective actions data base and data analytics tools software.

Internal audit team

The internal audit team consists of internal auditors with a variety and complementary range of educational backgrounds (such as accounting, information technology and industrial engineering), skills and work experiences.

The function is led by Mahardika Putranto, who is also the Corporate Secretary. He reports directly to the President Director. Mahardika was appointed on December 2019, and his appointment has been reported through an official letter to the Financial Services Authority and copied to the Board of Commissioners and Board of Directors of PT Adaro Energy Tbk.

The internal audit team consisted of eight auditors. One of them possesses international professional certification related to their internal audit work. The internal audit team also develops training programs to ensure they have adequate skills and knowledge to perform their responsibilities. In 2020, on average, each auditor had four days of training.

The Internal Audit Function adopts the Internal Audit Code of Ethics issued by the IIA. Each internal auditor is required to read and understand the code. To maintain its objectivity and independence, every year the internal auditors must sign a Conflict of Interest Statement to ensure that they do not have a potential conflict of interest in carrying out their duties and responsibilities. If there is any potential for a conflict of interest, actions will be taken to address the risk.

Quality assurance and improvement program

To ensure and keep improving its audit quality, the Internal Audit Function implements a quality assurance and improvement program that comprises:

  • conducting surveys to obtain feedback from the management;
  • performing self-assessment and peer review for each audit assignment to ensure compliance with the existing Internal Audit manual;
  • conducting self-assessment on the conformance with International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing and compliance with the OJK regulations;
  • conducting continuous improvement program (CIP) to improve audit cycle time and productivity

The result of quality assurance and improvement program is compiled and discussed every year to be included in our continuous improvement project for the following year. The quality assurance and improvement program has been performed regularly and produced positive results. The outcomes are reported to the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee on a regular basis.

Meeting with key stakeholders

To fulfil the accountability aspect, the Internal Audit Function conducted periodic meetings in 2020 with the BoD (four times) and the Audit Committee (three times) with following agenda:

  • progress of the 5-year plan;
  • progress of the annual audit plan;
  • audit reports;
  • status of corrective actions’ implementation; and
  • constraints in implementing the Internal Audit Charter.
