Audit Committee Charter

The Hobsons Bay City Council Audit Committee is an independent Advisory Committee to Council, appointed by Council pursuant to Section 139 of the Local Government Act 1989.

The Audit Committee Charter has been developed having regard to ‘Audit Committee - A Guide to Good Practice for Local Government’, January 2011 issued by the Minister of Local Government and the Victorian Auditor General’s report ‘Audit Committee Governance’ of August 2016 (including the Standing Directions of the Minister for Finance 2016).

The Charter sets out the Audit Committee’s objectives, authority, composition and tenure, roles and responsibilities, reporting and administrative arrangements.
