Assembly Commission Audit and Risk Committee

The Assembly Commission established the Assembly Commission Audit and Risk Committee (ACARC) to support the Clerk/Chief Executive (in his/her role as Accounting Officer) and the Assembly Commission and Senior Management Team (SMT) in monitoring their responsibilities for issues of risk, control and governance by reviewing the comprehensiveness of assurances in meeting the organisation’s assurance needs and reviewing the reliability and integrity of these assurances.

Membership of the ACARC includes 2 non-executive members: Dr Maurice Keady (Acting Chairperson). It also includes a member of the Assembly Commission, Mr Robbie Butler MLA.

The Assembly Commission Audit and Risk Committee meets at least quarterly and on other occasions as deemed necessary by the Chairperson and / or the Commission. The Committee is provided with a secretariat function by the Legal and Governance and Research Services Directorate.
