Show Summary Details


This chapter describes and analyzes the internal institutions of the executive with competences in the field of finance: the Treasury; other bodies concerned with efficiency and economy; the structures within departments which interact with the Treasury; and the position of the new executive agencies deriving from the Next Steps programme. The agencies constituted as government trading funds, agencies not so constituted but which have their own Vote, and agencies which fall into neither of these classes are discussed as well. The Treasury has no central managerial functions in relation to the Government Accountancy Service. In contrast to the position now reached in relation to the Government Legal Service, the Service does not have any influence on the career patterns of accountants within departments.
