Drawing on 20 years of experience as Comptroller and Auditor General, and head of the United Kingdom National Audit Office, Public Sector Auditing: Is it Value for Money? is Sir John Bourn’s own account of the role and influence value for money auditing has in holding governments to account and in helping public bodies improve the ways in which they deliver services.

Key features include:

  • In-depth case studies from UK, US, Canada, China, India and Australia;
  • Detailed analysis of complex areas of public expenditure such as health, education, privatisation, regulation, defence and IT;
  • Examples of how auditing can promote positive outcomes rather than negative post mortems.

This book is relevant for people working in both the public and private sectors, and should be essential reading for the staff of public sector audit institutions around the world, as well as commercial accountancy firms and students of accountancy, politics, economics and public management.
