The Falklands does not have a Chief Auditor, however St Helena’s Chief Auditor, Brendon Hunt, was able to offer insight into the benefits he provides to the PAC. During one-on-one meetings with Nancy, he explained, in detail, some methodologies for performance audits and gave helpful advice on how to structure PAC reports which can then be the basis of future Hearings. The reports also can stand alone as a document to aid the PAC in making recommendations to government in terms of economy, efficiency and effectiveness in the spending of public money.
Evidence-gathering in the Falkland Islands was an area of interest to the St Helena team. The methods used in the Falklands, with a team of researchers, could be of potential benefit for the audit team. Similarly, their methods of gathering of information from the public could be of help to the St Helena PAC.
