City of Newcastle (CN) is committed to ensuring accountability for public money and high levels of service, governance, quality, professional conduct and compliance with professional standards and other legislative requirements.

We have established an Audit and Risk Committee in accordance with statutory obligations and recognised best practice. The Audit and Risk Committee is made up of independent and Councillor members and reports periodically to the elected Council as provided in its committee Charter adopted by the Council.

The objective of the Audit and Risk Committee is to provide independent assurance and assistance to CN on risk management, fraud control, governance, financial, and legal and regulatory obligations.

The Audit and Risk Committee also acts as a forum for communication between Council, executive management, internal audit and external audit; and provides oversight of our internal audit activity.
