ORPC 2022 ACM Question and Answer

Question received from Samantha Seah on 12 May 2022

Question – Auditor Rotation

Our church auditor has remained the same for the past couple of years – Deloitte & Touche. Shouldn’t this auditing firm be replaced with another firm, to ensure Governance?

Answer

The Finance Committee undertook a review of our current policy and embarked on an external auditor evaluation exercise involving the incumbent and a shortlist of suitably qualified candidate firms as potential replacement in late 2021.

Based on our findings and various considerations, the Finance Committee’s recommendation to the Board of Management was to retain Deloitte & Touche LLP as the external auditor for ORPC and Dunman’s Trust accounts. Our existing policy for audit partner rotation is in keeping with the regulatory standards in Singapore, therefore there is no need to make any changes at this stage to our policy. The recommendations of the Finance Committee were accepted by the Board of Management and endorsed by Session in November 2021.

For good governance, we will request for a change in the partner in charge of our audit for FY2022.
