Unprecedented increase in missing data reduces utility of Whole of Government Accounts, PAC finds

24 May 2024

The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has published correspondence in lieu of a report following its inquiry into the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) 2021-22.

The PAC finds that the unprecedented increase in the amount of missing and unaudited data within the 2021-22 WGA continues to reduce its utility as a record of public finances.

The correspondence also puts on the record the Committee’s serious concerns that the issues in local authority audit will likely result in the Comptroller & Auditor General disclaiming his audit opinion on the WGA in future.

To find out more, including oral and written evidence go to the inquiry page, Whole of Government Accounts 2021-22.
