Audit Committees help organisations function according to good governance and accounting and auditing standards, and adopt appropriate risk management arrangements. We regard well-functioning Audit Committees as key to helping organisations achieve good corporate governance.
The Audit Committee checklist is part of the range of guidance and tools that we have developed to assist public sector Audit Committees.
Audit Committees can assess their performance against best practice using the checklist. We can help Committees by facilitating a workshop to assess performance. To arrange for a workshop please contact your client director in the NAO in the first instance.
