PAC to give NAO verdict

The Public Accounts Commission is in talks today to decide its response to ex-FSA chief's proposals, which include a possible merger of NAO and Audit Commission.

The Public Accounts Commission is in talks today to thrash out a response to
John Tiner’s review of the governance of the National Audit Office.

The ex-FSA boss was brought in by the commission to conduct
a study
of the NAO’s corporate governance and stated a case for the NAO merging with the
Audit Commission as part of the sweeping overhaul.

The body, charged with keeping a close eye on the NAO, which itself monitors
public spending, is making its recommendations to ensure that the NAO’s
corporate governance framework meets requirements.

During last year, the NAO came in for sustained criticism after its former
chief Sir John Bourn and other top brass were embroiled in an expenses storm.

A commision spokesman said: ‘They set up the Tiner review because something
clearly needed to done at the NAO. They will be publishing their response later
this week.’
