Committee details

Audit and Standards Committee

Purpose of committee

The purpose of an audit committee is to provide independent assurance of the adequacy of the risk management framework and the associated control environment,  independent scrutiny of the authority's financial and non-financial performance to the extent that it affects the authority's exposure to risk and weakens the control environment, and to oversee the financial reporting process.


Following changes to the arrangements governing the Members Code of Conduct under the Localism Act 2011, the Committee is also now responsible for matters relating to standards of Member conduct, including dealing with any complaints.
