Risk, Audit and Governance Committee

The Risk, Audit and Governance Committee (formerly the Audit and Risk Committee) ensures that financial planning risk is managed effectively, and has the following responsibilities:

  • To scrutinise the Authority's accounts and finances to ensure that they are prepared in accordance with accounting policies and good practice.
  • To take a strategic view on whether the resources allocated to the Authority are used effectively and efficiently in pursuit of its authorised purposes and objectives.
  • To obtain assurances from a range of measures and reports that value for money is obtained in the use of these resources, and that risk and performance are actively managed to achieve best results.
  • To have general oversight of the Authority's governance arrangements including dealing with members' concerns regarding governance issues at the Authority.

The committee was re-purposed as the Risk, Audit and Governance Committee in 2023 to reflect revised terms of reference.
