Public Accounts Committee for the Falkland Islands
As required by the Falkland Islands Constitution, all investigations into public accounts must be made transparent and available to the public. This website provides access to these reports and their findings, as well as news; information regarding ongoing investigations; details on how to raise an enquiry; and the role of the Public Accounts Committee.
Role of the Committee
The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is a committee independent of the government formed under the Falkland Islands Constitution to study the culpability of public money and spending. Lay members are appointed to the committee by the Governor and its powers in maintaining the important function of good governance include full investigatory autonomy, the ability to call officials for questioning, and the issuing of reports of findings and recommendations to the Legislative Assembly.
