Finance and General Purposes Committee

The Finance and General Purposes Committee monitors how the Trust spends the public money it is allocated by the nation.  It makes sure that:

  • spending has been for the purpose intended and there is probity in the use of public funds;
  • spending decisions represent value for money, and are justified as such;
  • internal delegation levels exist and are applied within the trust;
  • a competitive tendering policy is in place and applied, and appropriate thresholds are observed;
  • relevant professional advice is obtained where appropriate, including that of the external auditor where necessary.
