The National Audit Office (NAO) is the UK’s independent public spending watchdog. We support Parliament in holding government to account and we help improve public services through our high-quality audits. We are independent of government and the civil service. The Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG), Gareth Davies, leads the NAO. He is an officer of the House of Commons with statutory authority to:

  • audit and report on the financial accounts of all government departments and other public bodies
  • examine and report on the value for money of how public money has been spent. ​

We support the work of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). It uses our reports to hold evidence sessions focused on public spending and scrutinising the implementation of government policy. Audited bodies are required to respond to recommendations made by PAC which are often based on our work.

We report on issues that matter to citizens – for example, our work on government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our investigation into the condition of school buildings and our value for money report on High Speed Two.

Our work has a positive financial impact through reduced costs, improved service delivery and other benefits to citizens.
