Examples of outstanding corporate reporting that build trust and transparency are available to view in an interactive pdf.

Best practice in corporate reporting has been identified in a helpful guide from the National Audit Office (NAO).

The interactive pdf was produced for the NAO’s Building Public Trust Awards to demonstrate good examples of public sector reporting.

The awards, which are now in their 13th year, recognise outstanding corporate reporting that builds trust and transparency. They are sponsored by PwC and the public sector award is co-sponsored by the NAO.

In 2015 the public sector award for excellence in public sector reporting was won by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.

Kate Mathers, Director of the NAO’s Financial Audit Practice & Quality team, sits on the judging panel for the awards. She said: “During the judging process we identified a number of examples of good practice from the 52 public sector annual reports and accounts reviewed.

“This interactive pdf summarises the judging criteria and highlights examples of good practice in reporting on strategy, risk, operations, governance, success measures, financial performance, people factors, external factors and understandability.
