The NAO's non-executive board members are appointed by the Public Accounts Commission, upon the recommendation of the NAO chairman. In considering candidates for the role, the chairman considers the requirements of the board, and the need to ensure a balance of skills and experience, and recommends the strongest candidates from those who apply. The roles are subject to a fair and open competition and no gender-based criteria apply.
