Public Accountability and Governance for Senior Managers

September 10 2014

This half-day seminar targets members of the senior management team who support the chief executive in his or her accounting officer role: heads of finance and audit functions and, more generally, others who direct operations and otherwise determine the ways in which an organisation discharges its functions.

Brian Whalley, an independent consultant and acknowledged expert in this area, presents the seminar, which includes a contribution from the Northern Ireland Audit Office.

The seminar programme covers:

  • what is meant by corporate governance, accountability and responsibility in government;
  • stewardship of public funds;
  • regularity and propriety in the conduct of public business;
  • the personal responsibility of the designated Accounting Officer;
  • the role of the Northern Ireland Audit Office; and
    the work of the Public Accounts Committee.

The fee for this seminar is £200+ VAT.

A finger buffet lunch will be available at the end of the session.
