The following provides an overview of the membership and responsibilities of all of the committees of the Board of Directors.
In addition to the above functions, the Audit Committee has adopted procedures for its receipt, retention, and treatment of concerns and complaints regarding accounting, internal controls, or auditing matters. The Audit Committee has established an online reporting tool located at www.novell.com/ethics/index.jsp, accessible through the Corporate Governance page, for the submission of such concerns by stockholders, employees and members of the public. All submissions may be made completely anonymously. The Audit Committee encourages, but does not require, that anyone making a submission supply his or her contact information to facilitate follow-up, clarification and assistance with investigation of the concern or complaint. We do not permit retaliation or discrimination of any kind against employees for any complaints submitted in good faith.
The Board of Directors has adopted a written charter for the Audit Committee. A current copy of the Audit Committee Charter is available on our website at http://www.novell.com/company/ir/cg/ through the Corporate Governance page.
