Public Reporting Programme

This document sets out the Northern Ireland Audit Office’s public reporting programme for 2019 to 2022. It builds on the strategic approach, taken in the previous Programme, to develop a programme of work that is relevant and focused on the most important issues facing the public sector in Northern Ireland.

The range of our work has widened from the traditional value for money study to shorter, fact-based reports and impact reports which assess the progress made on key issues from earlier reports. The programme includes significant work in the local government arena, and over a third of our work will address important cross-cutting issues that lie beyond the boundaries of any single government department.
