Audit and Risk Committee
Due to COVID-19 the Audit and Risk Committee are temporarily meeting by electronic means.
Council is required by the Local Government Act 1999 (section 126) to have an audit committee. The Audit and Risk Committee has been established for this purpose.
The functions of the Audit and Risk Committee include:
- following a review of the Council's annual financial statements, to provide advice to Council that they fairly state the affairs of the Council;
- to liaise with the Council's auditors in relation to the financial affairs of the Council and the conduct of the Council's audit;
- to review the adequacy of the accounting, internal control, reporting and other financial management systems and practices of the Council on a regular basis and to report to Council on the outcome of the reviews;
- to propose, and provide information relevant to, a review of the Council's strategic management plans or annual business plan; and
- to propose, and review, the exercise of powers under section 130A of the Local Government Act 1999 - (examine and report on any matter relating to financial management, or the efficiency and economy with which the Council manages or uses its resources to achieve its objectives).
Please view the Audit and Risk Committee Terms of Reference for further information.
