Joint Independent Audit Committee (JIAC)

The statutory Financial Management Code of Practice (FMCP) requires that an Audit Committee is established which is independent of both the Police Force and the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

The Dorset Joint Independent Audit Committee (JIAC) consists of five members and has the following key functions:

  • To provide general comment, advice and assurance on matters relating to the internal control environment of the Force and the Office of the PCC (OPCC)
  • To have oversight of general governance matters and to provide comments on any new or proposed PCC policies and strategies or changes to existing relevant policies and strategies which, in the opinion of the Chief Financial Officers, are significant with regard to risk and probity
  • Where the Committee has concerns about a specific governance or audit matter it may request that the relevant policy or strategy be presented to the Committee in order that assurance may be obtained and constructive comment provided where appropriate

The primary role of the Committee is to provide the Chief Constable and the PCC with reassurance in respect of their internal control measures and environment. More detail on the operation and role of the Committee is provided in the linked documents below:
