NAO report due out soon on Broadcasting House

Audit watchdog examined concerns over BBC building costs

The National Audit Office has completed its report into the spending of over
£800m of licence payers’ money on the redevelopment of the BBC’s flagship
headquarters at Broadcasting House in central London.

Alan Williams, deputy chairman of the powerful Commons public accounts
committee, asked Sir John Bourn, head of the NAO, to prepare a report into how
management at the national broadcaster is handling the work – which has been
hampered by delays and is now not expected to be finished before 2010.

Only a week ago the BBC was slammed over the way it added £60m to fitting out
new buildings at White City where it has spent £190m refurbishing the listed
building, the original home of BBC Radio.
