Public Audit (Wales) Act 2013

Paragraph 17 – Terms of appointment

69.The terms of appointment of the employee members must be made by the non-executive members, and may include remuneration arrangements for allowances, gratuities, and other benefits to cover expenses. Such payments are to be made by the WAO. The employee members will continue to receive their salary as employees of the WAO. There is to be no provision for a pension as employee member but if the persons who are members have a pension as a result of being an employee of the WAO then their service as employee members will also count towards that pension entitlement.

70.An employee member’s term of office will not be regarded as a break in service of employment by the new WAO.
