Independent audit committee
The purpose of the independent audit committee (IAC) is:
- To provide independent assurance to the police and crime commissioner and the chief constable regarding the adequacy of the risk management framework and the associated control environment.
- To provide independent scrutiny of the force's and OPCC's financial and non-financial performance (to the extent that it affects their exposure to risk and weakens the control environment).
- To oversee the financial reporting process (adapted from CIPFA Audit Committees Practical Guidance for Local Authorities p9)
