The Wales Audit Office (WAO) Board has the responsibility to develop the strategic direction of the WAO and ensure the functions of the organisation are delivered efficiently and cost-effectively.

The organisation employs around 280 staff, and the Auditor General is its Chief Executive and Accounting Officer. The Auditor General is a statutory office holder responsible for a range of audit functions including the audit of the accounts of most public bodies in Wales.

The Senedd (Welsh Parliament) is looking to appoint two Non-Executive Members to the Board, to commence in June 2024 and October 2024.

In total, the WAO Board comprises nine members, five of whom are non-executives (including the Chair) plus the Auditor General for Wales and three employees of the WAO. The Non-Executive Members are appointed by the Welsh Parliament (‘the Senedd’). One employee member is nominated by the Auditor General and the other two are appointed by the Non-Executive Members following a ballot of WAO staff.
