To ask the Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission, how many civil servants in the Commission oversee contracts which have been awarded to external providers.
The Public Accounts Commission does not have any employees (including civil servants) and is not responsible for any contracts. It is a statutory body with a membership of nine Members of the House of Commons. Its role is defined by the National Audit Act 1983 and the Budget Responsibility and National Audit Act 2011. Its principal duties under the Acts are to examine the National Audit Office Estimate and lay it before the House, to consider reports from the appointed auditor of the National Audit Office (NAO), to appoint non-executive members of the NAO Board, and to report from time to time.
