GAD actuary Sarah Waters said: “Our work is integral to the overall picture of the WGA especially as we now mark 10 years since it began. We have been involved since the start as we helped with the original design.”
“We undertake detailed and long-term analysis of these aspects of public sector finances. It means that these aspects of the report are fully supported by GAD.”
The WGA is independently audited which provides greater confidence in the figures. The Public Accounts Committee also examine the accounts each year. Further the WGA is used to support longer term fiscal analysis by other organisations such as the Office for Budget Responsibility.
