Fact sheet: Governance Statements – good practice observations from our audits

Our “Fact Sheet: Governance Statements: good practice observations from our audits”, highlights the key messages and good practice we identified from our work. Organisations can use our good practice observations to help support better governance and more transparent reporting in their Governance Statements.

In 2012, we considered over 350 Governance Statements as part our audits of government’s accounts.

Our “Fact Sheet: Governance Statements: good practice observations from our audits”, highlights the key messages and good practice we identified from our work. Organisations can use our good practice observations to help support better governance and more transparent reporting in their Governance Statements.

Our Fact Sheet provides:

  • insight and commentary on the first year of Governance Statement reporting
  • observations on good practice
  • “challenge questions” for those whose role it is to oversee and scrutinise an organisation’s Governance Statement
