Between 11 – 22 October, CPA UK hosted the Public Accounts Committee Inquiry Workshop for Chairs, members, and clerks from Public Accounts Committees (PACs) from across the Commonwealth. The virtual programme was spread over two weeks to accommodate the varying time zones of participants.
The Workshop focused on the theme of procurement, a topic identified by Commonwealth PACs as one of interest and followed the inquiry process, from evidence gathering to writing a report and media engagement. The fourth day of the Workshop saw participants take part in a committee hearing exercise, based on a past real-life UK PAC procurement inquiry.
