Audit and Procurement Committee

The Council first appointed an Audit Committee in May 2009. The Committee reports directly to the full Council.

The membership of the Committee must reflect the political make-up of the Council and does not include Cabinet Members. Although its members can also be members of Scrutiny Boards, the Chair and Deputy Chair must not be the Chair or Deputy Chair of a Scrutiny Board.

The Committee considers issues relating to:

  • the Council's Internal and External Audit functions
  • the Council's accounts
  • the Council's "whistleblowing" and anti-fraud and anti-corruption policies
  • the monitoring of the development and operation of the Council's risk management arrangements
