The Board has established three committees: the Audit and Finance Committee, the Compliance Committee, and the System Operations Committee.
The Audit and Finance Committee advises on the quality and integrity of the Authority's financial reporting, including managing the relationship with the external auditor. It also considers whether appropriate governance, policies and operating processes are in place to identify and manage risk, and oversees and assesses the internal audit process. The membership of this committee is Susan Paterson (Chair); Elena Trout and Roger Sowry.
The Compliance Committee makes decisions on alleged breaches of the Act, various regulations, and the Code. It determines appropriate enforcement responses, whether initial settlement should be accepted or further investigation undertaken, and makes recommendations to the Board regarding decisions to approve settlements, the laying of formal complaints with the Rulings Panel, and instigating prosecutions. The membership of this committee is Roger Sowry (Chair), Susan Paterson and David Bull.
The System Operations Committee oversees the performance management of the system operator, identifies any emerging system security risks and addresses any other matters relating to the system operator's obligations under the Code. The membership of this committee is David Bull (Chair), Dr. Brent Layton and Elena Trout.
