His appointment was made by Sir John Bourn, auditor general for Wales and head of the National Audit Office.

The public audit (Wales) bill, if enacted, will extend the role of auditor general for Wales to include the Audit Commission’s current functions and is expected to come into full effect from 1 April 2005.

This will mean that Grace will maintain his Audit Commission role until the two organisations merge.

Sir John said: ‘Clive Grace has an impressive record in managing change and promoting improvement. Under my leadership it will fall to Clive to take the lead in putting the new Wales Audit Office on a strong footing as potentially one of the most comprehensive and progressive audit and inspection bodies anywhere in the world.’
