    Audit Committee

    Purpose of committee

    The Audit Committee is made up of 7 councillors and its main purpose is to give independent assurance to elected members and the public about the governance, financial reporting and performance of the council. It also scrutinises the Council's financial management and reporting arrangements and provides an independent challenge to what the council has in place. The Audit Committee oversees a number of control strategies such as corporate risk management, the authority's governance arrangements and assurance statements, and anti-fraud and anti-corruption arrangements. It helps raise the profile of these issues within the Council, as well as providing a forum for the discussion of issues raised by internal and external auditors. In this way, it enhances public trust and confidence in the financial governance of a local authority.
