HEW response to Wales Audit Office report

Following the publication of the Wales Audit Office report into higher education finances, Higher Education Wales commented:

“We welcome the publication of the Auditor General for Wales’s report and its conclusion that the financial health, planning and management of Welsh universities are sound. This demonstrates that despite the uncertainty and turbulence in a rapidly changing funding environment, universities in Wales are robustly managed with the right skills and experience present to appropriately meet future challenges.

“We will be considering the report’s recommendations for further development carefully and look forward to discussing how we can work with the Welsh Government and HEFCW on their implementation.”
