The Audit and Risk Management Committee is an independent committee established by, and reporting directly to, the Chief Executive of Statistics New Zealand.

The objectives of the Committee are to:

  2. oversee:
  • internal audit

  • control framework
  • external accountability
  • legislative compliance
  • external audit.

During the past year the Committee met on 6 September and 14 November 2012, and on 14 March, 13 May, and 20 June 2013.

At these meetings, the Committee:

  • met with the department's full Board during the 6 September meeting
  • received and considered regular reports on the implementation of Statistics 2020 Te Kāpehu Whetū and progress towards the intended outcomes, including initiating more detailed briefings on key Stats 2020 programmes (two such briefings were received in 2012/13)
  • discussed with the external auditors the findings from their audit work
  • discussed with the internal auditor her audit plan for the year, the findings from the audit work, and reviewed the Internal Audit Charter
  • provided input and feedback into a review of the department’s risk management framework and practices, and the future implementation of the review’s recommendations for change
  • received and considered progress reports on a governance review for the department (including a discussion with the Chief Executive), business continuity planning, and security, including ICT security.

The Committee Chair has reported to the Chief Executive on the above matters. There are no outstanding or unresolved matters.

The Committee acknowledges the support of the outgoing Chief Executive and Government Statistician, Mr Geoff Bascand.
