Council resolved to establish an Audit Panel at its meeting of 25 March 2013. The Audit Panel plays an important role in ensuring good governance and financial management at Council through frequent reviews of Council’s policies, processes and systems.
The primary objective of the Panel is to support and assist Council and Management in providing a transparent and independent process in its financial and risk management practices to ensure accountability to the community in the governance, management and allocation of resources. Underpinning the above, the Panel ensures that there is an adequate and effective system of internal controls throughout Council.
The Panel consists of five members, including three independent members and two councillors, appointed by the Council for a maximum term of four years. One of the independent Committee members is also appointed by Council as the Chairperson.
The members are;
Nick Burrows (Chairperson)
Councillor Michael Percey
Councillor Richard Atkinson
