We have written recently to the Chair of the National Assembly's Public Accounts Committee(PAC) with an update on progress with our value for money examination considering whether the Welsh Government, including the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) has managed its relationship with AWEMA appropriately to protect and make good use of public funds. We had originally anticipated that we would be able to publish our report in May or June 2012. However, that timeframe was dependent on several factors. We have now explained to the PAC Chair that, because our programme of file reviews and interviews has been more substantial than we first envisaged, we now expect to publish our final report at the start of the National Assembly's autumn term. In our correspondence with the PAC Chair we have also taken the opportunity to reiterate the scope of our work in light of some inaccurate recent media coverage.
Our recent exchange of correspondence with the PAC Chair and out original terms of reference letter to the PAC Chait can be found among the papers for the PAC meeting on 3rd July 2012
