Government responds to C&AG’s Covid-19 financial management report

The Government of Jersey has responded to the Comptroller and Auditor General's (C&AG) latest Covid report, focusing on the management of public finances during the pandemic.

The Government welcomes the report, and particularly the C&AG's assessment that it responded well to the impact of Covid-19 through its financial management arrangements and acknowledging the additional workloads the pandemic placed on Treasury and Exchequer officers.

Responding to the report, the Minister for Treasury and Resources, Deputy Susie Pinel, said: "I'd like to thank the C&AG for her third report into the Government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"As the C&AG acknowledges, we had to respond at speed to the developing pandemic and make prompt and pragmatic decisions where appropriate, to protect the lives and livelihoods of Islanders. I thank the staff across Treasury & Exchequer for their commitment and hard work during this challenging time."

The Government will now consider the report and its recommendations and will respond fully in due course.
