States spending rules may change

Rules governing the way Guernsey States manage and spend tax payers money could change if plans by the Treasury and Resources Department are approved.

It hopes to address some of the problems identified in the fundamental spending review and the Wales Audit Office report.

It said rules on managing finances needed to be updated as States business had evolved and become more complex.

The new guidelines were developed after a six-week consultation period.

They cover finance, procurement, property and information and communications technology.

The department has also come up with "directives" which would underpin the rules, offering guidance on best practice.

Deputies will debate on whether to adopt the proposals later this month.
