Statement by Government of Jersey Chief Executive, Charlie Parker, in response to the report of the Public Accounts Committee report on financial management:

“The Treasurer and I welcome the recognition by the Public Accounts Committee of the substantial progress made in financial management by the Government and the need to invest in modernising systems and processes.

“We are already making progress on actions to address the majority of the Committee’s recommendations, including closing our end-of-year accounts faster than ever before and preparing to move to zero-based budgeting in 2021.

“We included information about the costs of the Finance Transformation programme in the Government Plan, and we will continue to provide further information about the longer-term costs and benefits of the programme as it develops.”

A formal response to the PAC report will be provided in line with the normal process and timetable.
