What does the Audit Committee do?
The Audit Committee supports our Accounting Officer (the Chief Executive of the Electoral Commission) in carrying out their formal accountability responsibilities.
Audit Committee members
A representative of the National Audit Office and our Head of Internal Audit have the right to attend any meeting of the Commissioners.
Members of the Audit Committee serve for three years, unless they cease to be a Commissioner or ask to stand down. They may be re-appointed for a further period not exceeding three years.

Our Accounting Officer, Director of Finance and Corporate Services and Head of Finance, together with representatives of the National Audit Office and Internal Audit, will normally attend meetings of the Audit Committee. The Committee may ask any other member of our staff to attend meetings.
