About the Audit Committee

The Audit Committee is a standing committee of the Council (see Statute A IV 7, Special Ordinance A (iv)​, Chapter XIII) and its work is central in providing public assurance that the University has in place appropriate financial and governance management structures. The Committee reports annually. 

The Committee is responsible for regulatory compliance across a range of areas.  Its duties include: reviewing the effectiveness of the University’s internal systems of financial and other control, and ensuring that satisfactory arrangements are in place across the University to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness, risk management and continuity planning.  It works alongside external auditors to review the nature and scope of the external audit and to consider the University’s financial statements as well as the statement provided by the Council on the corporate governance of the University.

The Audit Committee is the only University committee with a majority of members external to the University.
