Second joint report by the Auditor General for Wales and Wales Audit Office points to good progress made in meeting the objectives of Joint Strategic Equality Plan

In 2015-16, the Auditor General for Wales and the Wales Audit Office continued to develop our overall programme of work to help ensure that the necessary arrangements are in place to fully meet our equality duties and objectives.

This report looks back over the progress made against those objectives and the key developments that have taken place over the year. 

The report also highlights key areas of focus for our programme of equality work in 2016-17, which include:

  • implementing our equal pay and workforce diversity action plan
  • developing an approach to discharge the Auditor General’s new function under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, and
  • to further refine our policies and processes through ongoing monitoring and assessment of their application and impact.
