Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) Lynn Pamment has been awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the King’s 2024 New Year Honours List.
The CBE has been awarded to Lynn for Public Service in her role as Chair of the Financial Reporting Advisory Board to the UK HM Treasury, also known as FRAB.
Established in 1996, FRAB promotes the highest possible standards in financial reporting by the UK Government and includes representatives from the accountancy profession in the private and public sectors, academia and government bodies.
Lynn has been its Chair since June 2019.
Commenting on the honour, Lynn Pamment said:
“I was surprised and delighted to receive notification of the honour and I am humbled to be selected for my work with FRAB.
“The principles of ensuring that government financial reporting meets the best possible standards are important in every jurisdiction. My role with FRAB complements my role as C&AG through the Jersey Audit Office, where we aspire to be a trusted and innovative audit organisation that champions good governance and the wise use of public money in Jersey. We seek to provide independent assurance to the people of Jersey that public money is spent economically, efficiently and effectively, and see that the controls and governance arrangements in place within public bodies demonstrate value for money”.
Chair of the Board of Governance of the Jersey Audit Office, Grace Nesbitt OBE, said:
“We wish to congratulate Lynn on her award, which is clear recognition of her long-standing dedication to public service. Lynn’s experience and expertise at both national and international levels were determining factors in her original selection as Comptroller and Auditor General for Jersey. The King’s Honour only serves to reinforce the value of her contribution to the role of C&AG and how that can benefit the Island”.
