Watchdog brings in efficiency experts

The Charity Commission has appointed a team of business advisers to help it manage risk and improve efficiency.

The team from PKF will provide internal audit services for the commission to ensure that its systems are working well.

“The commission is going through a period of continued change after the strategic review of 2005 and the implementation of the Charities Act2006,” said Andrew Hind, chief executive of the commission. “While the changes are moving us forward, they can equally lead to increased business pressures and a change of risk profile.”

The audit will be more than a box-ticking exercise, and will add value by looking at improvements that can be made across the commission, according to Richard Weighell, the PFK partner who leads on business risk services.

“The commission is facing a tough challenge: to deliver more from less,” he said. “Going through any change programme brings risks. We’ll be looking at what can be done more efficiently – by mechanising or finding better practice.”
