star this property question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Henley on 24 October (HL10985), why Mr Haddrill was appointed responsible accounting officer on 1 August 2017 in view of the fact that he had been Chief Executive of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) since 2009, and the FRC at the date of his appointment was designated a public body under the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000; whether there was a period during which the FRC operated without a responsible accounting officer; if so, where accountability lay during that period; whether the FRC informed the Public Accounts Committee that it operated without a responsible accounting officer, for how long, and under whose authority; and if not, why not. more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Office for National Statistics concluded in December 2014 that the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) was a public body within central government. The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (as it then was) examined whether there was scope for further review. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy concluded in 2017 that they should work with the FRC on the formal application of all relevant guidelines. Prior to that date, the Department communicated the requirements it imposed on the FRC as a public body through the FRC’s Chief Executive Officer.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Financial Reporting Council (FRC)’s Practice Notes contain auditing rather than accounting guidance, so are not directly applicable to the preparation of the FRC’s accounts.</p><p> </p><p>Practice Notes contain best practice guidance to help auditors apply auditing standards in the context of particular kinds of engagement (including public sector bodies, charities and banks). They do not contain additional requirements to those in auditing standards (ISAs (UK)), Practice Note 10 provides relevant context and application guidance for any audit engagement for a public sector body, including the FRC.</p><p> </p><p>The audit of the FRC is carried out in accordance with auditing and ethical standards used by all auditors in the UK.</p><p> </p><p>Practice Note 10 provides guidance on regularity. Regularity is the concept that transactions recorded in the financial statements of an audited business must be in accordance with the relevant framework. These frameworks are specific to the audited business and set out the requirements their transactions must comply with.</p><p> </p><p>The FRC auditor is not required to give a separate opinion on regularity because the FRC is required to prepare its accounts in accordance with Companies Act requirements and uses FRS 102.</p>
