The Deputy Director of Finance submitted a report for approval to the Audit and Risk Committee for presenting to Council, which set out the Committee’s achievements over the Municipal Years 2019/20 and 2020/21.
Colin Sharpe, Deputy Director of Finance presented the report and it was noted that the Committee’s Terms of Reference approved by Council required that an annual report be compiled.

The conclusion the report noted the Committee had fulfilled all of the requirements of its Terms of Reference and the good practice guidance issued by CIPFA.
The Chair thanked the officer for the report and recommended the report be taken to Full Council for approval.
