Department of Construction and Infrastructure Annual Report 2010-2011 36 Corporate Governance Audit and Risk Management Committee The Department of Construction and Infrastructure established the Audit and Risk Management Committee in November 2010, following an extensive review by an independent consultant.

The Audit and Risk Management Committee comprises of three DCI staff appointed by the Chief Executive and two external members, including an independent chair. The committee met in November 2010 and March and May in 2011.

Audits and Reviews During the year, the department conducted and was subject to 14 audits. Six audits were carried out by the department itself, while the NT Auditor-General (NTAG) conducted a further eight. In addition, there are eight ongoing audit programs being run by the Construction Division. Outcomes of audits completed by the Auditor Generals Office were generally satisfactory. Audit findings were taken on board by the department and Construction Division and control processes and procedures reviewed and implemented in line with recommendations from the Auditor-General. DCI is serious about learning lessons from audits and responds with business improvements. By way of example, the table overleaf presents the outcomes of the compliance audit on AMS replacement Program which was conducted by NTAG in 2010-2011.
