Audit Committee information

The Audit Committee was established in September 2005 as part of the Council’s arrangements for ensuring that its financial management is adequate and that it has a sound system of internal control in place.

Its purpose is to provide independent assurance of the adequacy of the Council’s Risk Management Framework, independent scrutiny of the Council’s financial and non financial performance to the extent that it affects the Council’s exposure to risk, and to oversee the financial reporting process.
