  This memorandum is in response to your inquiry regarding the responsibilities of an effective audit committee.A competent and independent audit committee is critical to an effective system of corporate governance and internal control.The audit committee should have the responsibility to appoint and discharge the external auditors.In addition, the committee should determine the compensation of the external auditors and oversee their work. The audit committee should have direct access to both the external auditors and the internal auditors, and should approve the scope of their work.Finally, the audit committee should oversee the financial reporting and internal control systems of the company, including establishing procedures for the receipt and treatment of complaints about internal control, accounting or auditing matters.The Sarbanes-Oxley Act has requirements regarding the competence and independence of members of the audit committee to help ensure that they can discharge these responsibilities.
