The Audit and Risk Committee
The Audit and Risk Committee is a subcommittee made up of MHA Board Members. These Members have experience with, and an interest in, areas such as audit, finance, and risk management.
The Committee meet together at least once every three months. These meetings are an opportunity to look at matters in-depth relating to our management accounts and budgets. They also meet regularly with our auditors to ensure that there are no areas of concern. Finance policies, our Risk Register, and budgets are also discussed at these meetings. Recommendations are made to the Board in all areas of audit, finance, and risk management. The Committee also contribute towards our process to create our three-year strategic Business Plan.
Additionally, they meet to discuss our long term financial forecasting. Workshops are also held by the Committtee to help identify the impact of proposed changes to our rents.
The Audit and Risk Committee is currently Chaired by Eric Hollanders.
