Jowell has ordered the Football Association to obtain an independent assessment from the parliamentary watchdog of its deal with Multiplex, a construction company, to build a 90,000-seat stadium on the old Wembley site.
The probe will add further delay and controversy to the troubled national stadium deal.
In additional, the NAO will be asked by the government to analyse whether the £20m of public funds for transport links to the stadium represents good value for money.
The investigation, which is expected to take up to four months to complete, will look at recently discovered concerns about the bidding process for the Wembley contract.
