Shape Our Audits 

What do we want?

We’re looking for your views on our planned future work programme.

Every year, the Auditor General for Wales carries out work to examine the delivery and management of public services in Wales.

Sometimes we look at a particular service area, other times we focus on individual organisations, specific projects and programmes.

You can see examples of the sorts of work we carry out in our most recent Annual Report and also in our Annual Plan.


Our future study topics are chosen in the context of our mission – that ‘the people of Wales and National Assembly know whether public resources are being managed wisely’.

The studies we complete allow us to share good practice and support public services to address the challenges they face.

These challenges are significant. They include: continued financial constraints; a changing policy and political landscape and a rapidly changing digital environment.

To help us choose future topics, we want you to tell us what you think we should focus on by completing the form below.

We will consider your suggestions alongside planned engagement with the bodies we audit and our own assessments as we develop a programme of work for the coming years.

If you have specific concerns about the way a service, project, programme or organisation is currently being run then please see our website section on raising concerns.  

We have extended the deadline to Friday 27 July 2018 to complete our survey.

Code of Data Matching Practice

This consultation invites views and comments on a draft update of the Code of Data Matching Practice of the Auditor General for Wales. The Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004 requires the Auditor General for Wales to keep under review the Code of Data Matching Practice (“The Code”) and consult stakeholders before it is altered.
