Public Audit (Wales) Act 2013

Section 28 – Functions of the National Assembly

45.This section provides authority for the Assembly to make provision (within its Standing Orders) as to how the functions set out in this Act falling to the Assembly (other than its functions of approving legislation) are to be exercised. The intention is that relying on this provision the Assembly could make provision in its Standing Orders so that one or more of its committees could exercise those functions relating to the oversight and supervision of the AGW. For example, the Assembly could provide that the function of appointing the non-executive members of the WAO will be exercised by a committee of the Assembly rather than by the Assembly acting in Plenary session.
