Audit and Risk Board Sub-Committee

The Committee is a sub-committee of the Board.

The Committee’s primary responsibility is to oversee and advise the Board on matters of accountability, risk management, ICT monitoring, financial reporting, financial management practices, and internal control affecting the operations of the Authority. In fulfilling its responsibilities and within the context of the Terms of Reference, the Committee will advise the Board of opportunities to improve the performance of the Authority.

Applicants must demonstrate strong skills and experience in Information systems and technology, Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Data Security. Additional skills in the following areas will be highly regarded:

• Financial management
• Risk management
• Corporate governance
• Internal/external audit
• Occupational health and safety
• Audit committee/board membership
• Legislative compliance programs

Independence of the Audit Committee Member

An essential feature of an effective audit committee is independence from management – this will assist in mitigating any influencing of the work and oversight of the committee.

Relationships that may be seen to impair an Audit Committee member’s independence and render a candidate ineligible include:

• current or previous employment by the Authority or having been a non-executive Board director after ceasing to hold such employment;
• receipt of material consulting, advisory or contractual relationship with the Authority; or
• any interest and any business or other relationship which could, or could reasonably be perceived to, materially interfere with the person’s ability to act in the best interests of the Agency.


External Independent Committee members will receive a fixed attendance fee for each meeting attended in accordance with State Government guidelines.

All appointees are eligible to be reimbursed for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses such as travelling, accommodation, meals and other incidental expenses associated with attendance at meetings, overnight absence from home or absence from the normal work location in the course of field duties.


An appointment will be made by the Authority for a 3 year term with the external member expected to attend 4-5 meetings each year with further meetings called if required.


The Authority’s Terms of Reference is available by contacting Mark Binks on 0437 007 566.

Please submit a written expressions of interest clearly demonstrating how your skills, knowledge and experience align with the role, together with a detailed CV.
