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.
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
