The Coalition Government is committed to ensuring accountability in public life. That is why we have established the Triennial Review process to examine all non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs).
As part of this on-going programme, I am announcing today the Triennial Review of the Civil Nuclear Police Authority (CNPA)
As with all such reviews, this has two aims:
- to challenge the continuing need for an NDPB to carry out this role – both its functions and form; and – if it is agreed it should remain as an advisory NDPB
- to review its control and governance arrangements to ensure it is complying with recognised principles of good corporate governance
I will announce the findings of the Review in March 2014.
If you would like further information, or to contribute to the Review, please contact my Department at CNPAReview@decc.gsi.gov.uk. This DECC mailbox will be open until end March 2014.
