Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee
This advisory committee to Council plays a pivotal role in our governance framework. The committee provides independent assurance and assistance to the Council on risk management, control, governance and external accountability responsibilities. It:
- provides independent oversight and monitors Council's audit processes, including internal control activities
- has no executive powers unless such powers are delegated to it by the Council
- is directly responsible and accountable to the Council for the exercise of its powers and responsibilities.
The Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee achieves its independence by having a majority of independent members (external to Council and its operations) and two councillors.
- Provide independent assurance and assistance to the Eurobodalla Shire Council on risk management, control, governance and external accountability responsibilities.
