O Dowd welcomes latest Audit Office report

4 May, 2007

Sinn Féin MLA John O Dowd, chair designate of the Assembly Public Accounts Committee has welcomed the publication of the latest Audit Office report into governance.

Commenting on the report Mr O Dowd said:

"This latest Audit Office report looks at best practice arrangements for the Governance of Arm length Bodies, this follows a number of high profile reports of the previous PAC into bad practice and weakness in the governance of some arms length bodies.

"While today's report may not be as high profile as previous such reports I do not think it significance should be lost as the Auditor office is offering to departments best practice in the sector for the future. This report may well be the benchmark against which any future report of the PAC will measure success or failings of departments in this field." ENDS
