Section 27 - fees
54.Section 27 requires the Auditor General for Wales to set a scale or scales of fees to carry out audits, assessments and special inspections. The Auditor General for Wales will have discretion to charge a fee which departs from the set scale if the work in relation to an audit, assessment or inspection is substantially more or less than originally envisaged. Before setting a scale of fees, the Auditor General for Wales must consult the Welsh Ministers and representatives of Welsh improvement authorities.
55.This section also ensures that Auditor General for Wales’ fees charged under this Measure are treated in the same way as fees charged by him/her for other purposes.
