  • Consider applications for a compliance audit made by electors and decide whether there are reasonable grounds to request an audit;
  • Receive the Auditor’s report and determine whether legal proceedings should be commenced;
  • Provide recommendations as to whether there were reasonable grounds for the compliance audit and whether cost recovery should be requested if no reasonable grounds for the compliance audit were found.
