Audit Committee (June 1999 - April 2003)
The Audit Committee ensures that proper and thorough scrutiny is given to the Assembly’s expenditure
and that the Assembly and other public bodies operate to the highest possible standards in the management of their financial affairs. It does this so that the people of Wales can be confident that their money is being spent wisely and well.The
Audit Committee examines reports prepared by the Auditor General for Wales on the accounts of the Assembly and other public bodies and on the economy, efficiency and effectiveness with which the Assembly has used its resources in discharging its functions. The
Committee makes specific inquiries into issues of interest or concern arising from these reports. In doing so it may hear evidence from the responsible accounting officers and other civil servants and call for relevant papers. It then reports and makes recommendations
on its findings. In conducting its inquiries, the Committee cannot question the merits of the policy objectives of the Assembly or other body under review.The
Committee meets once a month during term time. Information on the dates of meetings can be found by clicking one of the headings on the left-hand side.
