The Government has welcomed the latest report from the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General into Non-Ministerial Departments.
The C&AG report, published on 5 December 2019, investigates a range of individual bodies described as Non-Ministerial (not having Ministerial accountability) including:
- Bailiff’s Chambers
- Law Officers’ Department
- Judicial Greffe
- Viscount’s Department
- States Assembly
The Treasury will now work with the Non-Ministerial Departments to address the recommendations, which are directed jointly to the Government and those Departments.
Treasury is implementing a transformation programme to improve financial management across the States of Jersey and this includes the service to, and oversight of, Non-Ministerial Departments.
An official response will be provided to the Public Accounts Committee in line with normal protocol.
