Following his qualification on the Welsh Government’s Consolidated Accounts for 2020-21, the Auditor General for Wales has published a report relating to a payment to the Welsh Government’s former Permanent Secretary on termination of her employment in October 2021.

The way in which the Welsh Government made decisions regarding the former Permanent Secretary’s working arrangements and determined to make a payment to her on the termination of her employment lacked transparency and did not comply with good governance principles.

The Auditor General considers that the facts regarding this matter should be brought to the attention of the public and the Senedd.
