What does the Audit and Governance Committee do?

This committee provides an independent assurance of the adequacy of the Council’s corporate governance arrangements, including:

  • an assessment of the effectiveness of the Council’s anti-fraud and anti-corruption arrangements
  • an examination of the authority’s financial and non-financial performance
  • associated risk management and control environment

The committee also provides an independent review of the authority’s exposure to risk or any other such event that may weaken the control environment.  Full details of the responsibilities of  committees are set in the constitution.
