National Audit Office report: Audit Committee self-assessment checklist

Audit Committee self-assessment checklist

The Audit Committee checklist is based on the Treasury's Audit Committee Handbook and on feedback from staff and Audit Committees. Audit Committees can assess their performance against best practice using the checklist.

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.
