Audit Committee

Purpose of committee

The audit committee’s purpose is to oversee and, independently of the Executive and Overview and Scrutiny function, provide the council with assurance of the adequacy of its corporate governance arrangements, including the risk management framework and the associated control environment. The committee reviews the authority’s exposure to and management of risk across all financial and non-financial activity, and oversees the financial reporting process.
