Grant system improvements implemented - Welsh Government

We will consider the report in detail and respond in due course. However, we have already implemented a number of improvements to the way grants are managed in Wales and will continue to ensure we build on this work to further improve our performance in this area.

– Welsh Government spokesperson

The committee makes 18 recommendations, including:

  • The Welsh Government publishes an annual grants report setting out how individual grants are reviewed
  • Timescales for the introduction of a central grant management IT system are drawn up
  • The development of a mechanism for increasing monitoring arrangements
