Open and Transparent Quality Mark 2016/17

Joint audit committee

The purpose of the joint audit committee (JAC) 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)
