The Annual Report highlights that, during 2013-14, we certified 427 accounts, published 66 value for money reports, supported 60 hearings of the Committee of Public Accounts and exceeded our cost reduction target. Our recommendations and reports helped government improve public services, and our work led to audited savings of almost £1.1 billion.
"The National Audit Office exists to provide assurance to Parliament on the way that public money is spent. In 2013-14 we have continued to play this vital role, delivering our most insightful and impactful programme of work to date. At the same time, we have transformed the way that we work. We have reorganised ourselves to focus on the systemic issues facing government, developed our investigative capabilities which allow us to be more responsive to emerging issues, and delivered sustainable ongoing savings in our budget of £2.5 million."
