The National Audit Office scrutinises public spending for Parliament. We work across all central government departments and a range of other public sector bodies.
We have deep knowledge of the challenges facing government, and our audit work gives us a unique perspective on how these challenges are being met.
This birds-eye view means we often see recurring issues across government. We also see innovations or successful ways of working that could be applied more widely.
By sharing our knowledge and insights on important cross-cutting issues, we want to make it easier for others to understand and apply the lessons from our work.
