The OCPE community includes all employees of the NTPS and their representatives. OCPE may also engage with a range of other stakeholders, including unions, tertiary institutions, community organisations and Northern Territory businesses and their employees.

The functions and responsibilities of the Committee are to: monitor the adequacy of the OCPEs internal control environment including risk management and related policies, practices and procedures oversee the internal audit functions, liaise with external auditors and monitor the implementation of internal and external audit recommendations and undertake any other functions and activities that the committee considers relevant to its primary objective.
