Westminster Workshop Series

Westminster Workshop Series


From Monday 4 July – Thursday 7 July 2016 CPA UK hosted the 6th Westminster Workshop on Parliamentary Financial Oversight of Aid Effectiveness at the Houses of Parliament, London.

This three-and-a-half day programme identified the key stages for parliamentary interventions and strengthen the knowledge and skills of parliamentarians and parliamentary officials in conducting effective financial oversight of aid flows. Based on the successful Westminster Workshop concept, the 6th edition delivered a combination of plenary discussions and practical workshops, exploring the good practice in parliamentary financial scrutiny. It built upon the expertise of the Westminster Public Accounts Committee (PAC), International Development and other committees, as well as the support of the Commonwealth Association of Public Accounts Committees (CAPAC).

In 2015 CPA UK, in partnership with CPA Malta, held the 5th Westminster Workshop: Effective, Independent and Transparent Public Accounts Committees for Robust Public Financial Oversight, which took place in Malta.

Building on previous workshops, the 5th Westminster Workshop continued to provide a forum for exploring the key current challenges faced by PACs across the Commonwealth, enabling the exchange of ideas and expertise on how PACs can increase their efficiency and effectiveness in scrutinising public expenditure; from budgeting and planning to tracking performance.
