Internal Audit

The Internal Audit Function has carried out its duties in accordance with the Internal Audit Charter. The Board of Directors has given its full support to the internal audit activities and there were no restrictions on the scope and access for the Internal Audit Function.

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

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.

The Internal Audit Function has been also established at three AEI’s subsidiaries, i.e. PT Adaro Minerals Indonesia Tbk, PT Adaro Indonesia, and PT Saptaindra Sejati. The Internal Audit Functions of the subsidiaries report to their President Director while also coordinate with AEI’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 2021, there were 555 audit objects in audit universe and the Internal Audit Function completed a total of nine audit and consulting reports with more comprehensive audit coverage. The Company’s audit covered four of the 41 strategic business units of Adaro 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 periodically. 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 2021, 132 corrective actions had been fully implemented, or 85% (target 85%) of the total corrective actions that were due by December 2021.

Review of the internal control system effectiveness

The Internal Audit Function rates the adequacy of controls implemented by management to mitigate risks and shows the rating in each audit report submitted to the Board of Directors, Board of Commissioners the Audit Committee and related management personnel. Based on the review on the three lines of risk management, it can be concluded that the internal control system across the Adaro Group had been running as intended with some opportunities for continuous improvements.


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 in December 2019, and his appointment has been reported through an official letter to OJK and copied to the Board of Commissioners and Board of Directors of PT Adaro Energy Indonesia Tbk.

The internal audit team consisted of five 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 2021, 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 2021 with the BoD (three 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 its Internal Audit Charter if any.
