​​Hamilton City Council manages billions of dollars’ worth of assets on behalf of its communities and provides services to 170,000 residents. Effective and transparent governance of the Council’s management of these assets, its financial and non-financial risks, and engagement with internal and external audit processes is the role of the Strategic Risk and Assurance Committee.

The Strategic Risk and Assurance Committee chair and deputy chair are both external appointments: Keiran Horne and Bruce Robertson respectively. Other members of the Committee are the Mayor, the chairs of the four main committees, (Crs Rob Pascoe, Dave Macpherson, Angela O’Leary and Mark Bunting), and the Maangai Maaori representative on the Finance Committee – Bella Takiari-Brame.​

The committee provides objective advice and recommendations to the governing body on the Council’s risk management and assurance framework and external reporting. It reviews related Council policies including those around risk management, conflicts of interest and sensitive expenditure, monitors emerging risks and does periodic in-depth reviews of specific significant risks.

It also reviews the adequacy of the Council’s risk mitigation actions and insurance policies, engages with the Council’s external auditors and reviews the effectiveness of the Long-Term Plan and Annual Plan audits.​
