- Thursday, 22 January 2015 10:45
Commenting on the NAO’s follow-up report into the Charity Commission, Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said:
‘This review reflects significant progress for which the Commission and its staff deserve much credit. The NAO identify a number of outstanding areas of concern. We are particularly keen to see the Commission return to a more conventional division between governance and executive. We look forward to seeing the results of the governance audit being carried out in the coming months.
Given the need for the Commission to secure the confidence of the sector, it is very important that it quickly moves to publish regular, comprehensive indicators of its operational performance in all areas. This information is absent at the moment and will be a key way for the sector to see the Commission’s progress towards being the strong regulator we need.’
