Payment to the Welsh Government’s Former Permanent Secretary on Termination of Employment
30 September 2022

This report has been prepared under Paragraph 19(1) of Schedule 8 to the Government of Wales Act 2006

The Auditor General for Wales has issued this report relating to a payment to the Welsh Government’s former Permanent Secretary on termination of her employment in October 2021, following his qualification on the Welsh Government’s Consolidated Accounts for 2020-21.

What we found

Our report found that the way in which the Welsh Government made decisions regarding the former Permanent Secretary’s working arrangements and determined to make a payment to her on the termination of her employment lacked transparency and did not comply with good governance principles.
