The National Audit Office has published a follow up report into how government departments have fulfilled recommendations on effective partnership working between the government and civil society organisations (the Compact).
An article from Compact Voice points out that this report has been much delayed, and so doesn’t cover positive developments which have taken place in recent months. Read ‘Our take on the NAO’s follow up report: Some improvements seen, more work needed‘.
Civil Society News headline is ‘Government departments have made slow progress’, and must do more to improve the way they monitor and implement the Compact agreement, http://www.civilsociety.co.uk/governance/news/content/18826/government_departments_must_do_more_to_effectively_monitor_compact_reports_spending_watchdog
