Independent Examination duties

Governance weakness?

I've been approached to undertake an Independent Examination for a small charity. There are four trustees - two are husband and wife, and the original founders (the charity is a cause they're personally very passionate about).

I believe everything in their dealings will be legitimate, however one niggle I have is that their dominance of the board is a governance weakness. What are my duties in this respect? It goes without saying that it should heighten my risk assessment (they're both cheque signatories, and payments require two signatures), plus I gather I should also make written recommendations to them regarding my observations.

Anything else?

Your professional body will probably have something to say on the subject as well.
