Section 43: Co-operation with Audit Commission
92.This section imposes a duty on the Auditor General to co-operate with the Audit Commission where it seems appropriate for the efficient and effective discharge of his functions under sections 41 and 42. This duty is consistent with that imposed on the Auditor General in respect of the Assembly, the Audit Commission and CHAI, in relation to health functions, by section 62. A complementary duty is imposed on the Audit Commission by Schedule 2 to the Act. Further mutual duties on the Auditor General and the Audit Commission to co-operate, by exchanging information to facilitate each of them in making cross-border comparisons when carrying out studies under sections 41 and 42 (in the case of the Auditor General) and sections 33 and 34 of the Audit Commission Act (in the case of the Audit Commission), are imposed in section 57 and Schedule 2, respectively.
