Annual Governance and Accountability Return

Those who are responsible for the conduct of public business and for spending public money are accountable for ensuring that public business is conducted in accordance with the law and applicable proper practices.  They must also ensure that public money is safeguarded, properly accounted for and used economically, efficiently and effectively.

In discharging this accountability, public bodies and those responsible for their management are required to make proper arrangements for the governance of their affairs and the stewardship of the resources in their care. They are required to report on these arrangements in their published Annual Governance Statement.  Taken from the National Association of Local Council’s (NALC’s) publication “Governance and Accountability for Local Councils A Practitioners’ Guide (England) March 2014”
