The Audit Committee is independent of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Norfolk Constabulary.
The Committee considers the internal and external audit reports of both the PCC and the Chief Constable and provides advice on good governance principles and appropriate risk management arrangements.
The Committee also reviews the Annual Investment and Treasury Management Strategy and monitors delivery of this during the year.
Members also review the draft Annual Governance Statement and the draft Statement of Accounts.
Members receive an annual allowance of £3,000, and the Chair an allowance of £4,000. The current membership of the Committee is:
- Rob Bennett (Chair)
- Peter Hargrave
- Anna Bennett
- Julie Hills
- Adrian Matthews
The Committee has taken the decision to hold its meetings in public. The first meeting was held on 4 June 2015.
Next Audit Committee meeting
The Audit Committee is next due to meet on 27 July 2021 and, in response to guidance related to the Coronavirus pandemic, this will take the form of a virtual meeting. The agenda and reports for this meeting will be published below in due course.
If you wish to submit questions to the Committee on any matter on the public part of the agenda, please contact the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk (OPCCN).
Questions should be addressed to the Chair of the Audit Committee. The deadline for submission of questions is five clear working days before the meeting in order that an appropriate answer to the question can be given. Questions should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or written questions can be sent via post to the OPCCN.
A list of questions will be drawn up in order of receipt and copies of all questions and statements will be circulated to all members of the Committee.
Each member of the public asking a question must give his or her name and the town that they live within Norfolk. We will publish the question and response on our website but redact individuals’ details.
