Public Audit (Wales) Act 2013

Paragraph 2 – Savings for auditors appointed under section 13 of the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004

97.This paragraph provides that an appointment made by the AGW of an auditor of local government bodies in Wales (in accordance with current section 13 of the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004 ), will continue until the end of the period of appointment, rather than ending when the relevant provisions of this Act come into effect. Also preserved is the operational effect of appointment, including the scheme for fees which may be charged and the gathering and holding of relevant information; this ensures that work being done by the auditors appointed by the AGW can continue under the existing provisions of the 2004 Act, within the terms of their appointment.
