The NIPEC Council has established two statutory committees on which members also sit.

Also in attendance at the Audit and Risk Committee meetings are: Mrs Angela McLernon, Chief Executive, and Mr E N Thom, Head of Corporate Services, representatives from NIPECs External Auditor, the Northern Ireland Audit Office, and representatives from NIPECs Internal Auditor and a Financial Representative from the BSO.

The Committee meets four times a year, approx one month before each Council Meeting.

Remuneration Committee
The Remuneration Committee has the responsibility to make recommendations on the remuneration of senior executives. The Remuneration Committee meets as required and consists of the Council membership with the exception of those council members who serve on the Audit and Risk Committee, the Chief Executive and the Chief Nursing Officer.
