The Commission, working with the National Audit Office, has taken significant steps to reduce expenditure by the NAO. By the 31st March 2015, NAO expenditure will have reduced by 20% from its 2010–11 baseline of £74.1 million. This is a cut of more than 25% after adjusting for inflation.

The Commission will be discussing future resource proposals for the National Audit Office at a hearing scheduled for 2nd December 2014. This discussion will also consider the additional responsibilities in local government the NAO will take on following the passage of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014.
