Purpose of the consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Public Audit (Wales) Act 2013 was introduced in July 2012 and became law in Wales on 29 April 2013. The Act aimed to strengthen and improve the accountability and governance arrangements relating to the Auditor General for Wales and the Wales Audit Office whilst protecting the Auditor General for Wales’s independence and objectivity.

Following its inquiry to consider proposals to amend the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2013, the Finance Committee agreed to consult on a Draft Bill with a view to introducing it in this Assembly. The Draft Bill seeks to amend the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2013 in order to address issues identified during the Committee’s post-legislative scrutiny of the Act.
