The Audit Committee

Transparency and compliance are two of the vital principles that guide Paris 2024’s organisation and action. To that end, it has set up three committees (Audit, Ethics and Remuneration), to task people outside Paris 2024 with ensuring it follows the principles in the Paris 2024 Code of Ethics. 

Paris 2024 uses the Audit Committee’s recommendations – which are based on its members’ experience, uncompromising standards and neutral views – to continue to honour the commitments it made when Paris bid to host the Games.  

A group of experts meeting on a regular basis

This Committee reviews the way Paris 2024 is managed in light of its commitments and makes any necessary recommendations, in particular to ensure Paris 2024’s budget remains viable and that its accounts are kept and monitored properly. For instance, the Audit Committee reviews Paris 2024’s financial statements and annual budget before they are submitted to the Board of Directors for approval.  

The Audit Committee meets every month to discuss all the matters it deems relevant in relation to Paris 2024’s risk management and finances, and the accounting method it applies to prepare the Organising Committee’s annual financial statements. It also ensures we fulfil the pledges we made when we signed our Host City Contract with the IOC.
