The National Audit
Office
has started its search for a chairman after one its most turbulent
periods.

The new position, worth some £50,000 a year for one day a week’s work, is
expected to be at the centre of efforts to ensure best practice after a root and
branch reform of the NAO’s corporate governance was called for by the Public
Accounts Commission.

The review followed an expenses scandal in 2007, which led to former
comptroller and auditor general Sir John Bourn stepping down after 25 years.

Edward Leigh MP, chairman of the Public Accounts Committee; Nicholas
Macpherson, permanent secretary of HM Treasury; and Tim Burr, the present
comptroller and auditor general, form the selection panel for the chairman, who
will then assist in appointing a C&AG.
