Governance

The governance structure of BRAC promotes transparency and accountability. Our Governing Body consists of highly distinguished professionals, activists and entrepreneurs who are elected by the General Body and bring their diverse skills and experience to the governance of BRAC. The governing body is assisted by an audit committee which aids in reviewing the financial condition of the organisation, the effectiveness of the internal control system performance, and the findings of the internal and external auditors in order to recommend appropriate remedial action.
