Natural Resources Wales

 

Receiving evidence

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is the largest Welsh Government Sponsored Body - employing 1,900 staff across Wales with a budget of £180 million. NRW was formed in April 2013, largely taking over the functions of the Countryside Council for Wales, Forestry Commission Wales and the Environment Agency in Wales, as well as certain Welsh Government functions.

 

The Auditor General for Wales undertook a review of whether NRW has in place, or is developing, effective governance arrangements that support delivery of its key priorities and outcomes, publishing a report in February 2016.

 

The Public Accounts Committee considered this report and scrutinised NRW’s Annual Accounts 2015-16 following qualification by the Auditor General. The Committee received regular updates on the implementation of NRW’s action plan following the Committee’s Report.

 

The Auditor General qualified NRW’s 2017-18 Annual Accounts on 16 July 2018 which the Committee will scrutinise in September 2018.
