NAO's battle with Ordnance Survey

It should be pointed out that Ordnance Survey has included a value for boththe hardware and software of the database in its accounts.

What OS vehemently disagrees with is NAO’s attempt to place a value on the dataincluded on the database.

To suggest that data should be valued as a tangible asset is clearlyarguable and has little to do with the government’s resource accountinginitiative. OS took professional accountancy advice at the highest level,reviewed the accounts of similar private and public sector bodies and gavemuch thought to the matter before deciding to disagree absolutely with NAO’sview.
