The Wales Audit Office is the public sector watchdog for Wales.
Our aim is to ensure that the people of Wales know whether public money is being managed wisely and that public bodies in Wales understand how to improve outcomes.
We do this through:
- Auditing the financial accounts of public bodies
- Reporting on how services are being delivered
- Assessing whether value for money is being achieved
- Checking how organisations are planning and delivering improvements
We are also committed to identifying and spreading good practice, to help public bodies deliver better services.
Our work includes all devolved public sectors in Wales – including health and social care, local and central government, fire and rescue authorities, national parks, police, probation and community councils.
We are responsible for the annual audit of £15 billion of public funds, most of the public money spent in Wales.
Our blog is designed to provide you with a flavour of the kind of work we do and the activities we are involved in.
Blog posts are written by our staff, with occasional guest posts from other organisations we work with.
