Judicial Council Administration: Rule for the Advisory Committee on Audits and Financial Accountability for the Judicial Branch (PDF, 182 KB)
Item Number: SP17-02
Deadline for Comments: May 19, 2017 5:00 PM (Pacific)

The Internal Chairs of the Judicial Council recommend that rule 10.63 on an advisory committee be amended so that the committee may more effectively assist the Judicial Council in carrying out the goals of the judicial branch, particularly in the area of the management and oversight of fiscal affairs. One of the most important functions of government is to ensure that public funds are properly spent and accounted for. Rule 10.63 would be amended to more clearly prescribe the duties of the committee: the committee will assist the council in performing its responsibilities to ensure that the fiscal affairs of the judicial branch are managed efficiently, effectively, and transparently, and assist the council in performing its specific responsibilities relating to audits and contracting, as required by law and good public policy.
