Greater Manchester Joint Audit Panel
- The GMCA is legally required to establish an Audit Committee to oversee its full range of accountabilities, which includes the budget for policing and for the police element of council tax bills. The Mayor and Chief Constable have agreed that a Joint Audit Panel is necessary in order to give sufficient focus to the resources allocated to policing.
- The Joint Audit Panel is made up of five independent members, and is responsible for overseeing the arrangements for managing the resources of the Police Fund, including the Chief Constable’s final accounts, internal and external audit arrangements, risk management and the annual governance review of the Chief Constable.
