Treasury begins search for a financial reporting advisory chair

A new chair is needed for the independent body promoting best standards in
the government’s financial reporting.

With current chair Elwyn Eilledge stepping down in the middle of the year, a
qualified accountant is required with a “track record of successful chairing or
proven leadership capability”.

The
Financial
Reporting Advisory Board
is currently advising the
Treasury
on the implementation of international financial reporting standards into
government, and now has oversight of local authority accounting – which will
produce IFRS accounts from 2010/2011.

The position is not normally remunerated.
