Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee

Date commenced: 
8 September 2009

The Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee is an Advisory Committee of the Council and does not have executive power or authority to implement actions.

Formerly known as the Internal Audit Committee, Council adopted a revised Constitution which broadened the scope of the Committee and renamed it at its Ordinary Meeting on 22 June 2017 (Resolution 17-233).

The role of the Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee is, independently of management, to report to Council and provide appropriate advice on recommendations on matters relevant to the Charter.

The Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee's primary function is to assist Council to ensure that:

  1. Business systems and procedures have been established by the Executive Team and are effective.
  2. Appropriate risks and exposures are effectively managed.
  3. A culture of adherence to Council policies and procedures is promoted.
  4. Statutory compliance is promoted and monitored.
  5. The audit processes (both internal and external) are effective.
  6. The external reporting is objective and credible.
