Role of the Committee:
The Audit and Risk Assurance Committee supports the Board and Accountable Officer (the Chief Officer) by providing assurance that appropriate risk management, governance and internal control systems are in place and are operating effectively.
The two most significant sources of assurance for the Audit and Risk Assurance Committee are Internal Audit and External Audit.
The work of Internal Audit is carried out primarily for the benefit of the Board and the Accountable Officer and, although the work of External Audit is normally primarily conducted for the benefit of the Scottish Parliament, it is of significant benefit to the organisation as well.
