There are processes in place to assure the accuracy of workforce management information before it is published. Workforce information published in the Annual Report is assured within HMRC’s Chief People Officer Group where the information is checked, approved and signed off by the Finance Director. Further internal assurance is carried out by the Audit and Risk Committee, as well as internal verification by the Chief Finance Officer and Permanent Secretary. The management information is then subject to external review and clearance by the NAO. These combined provide strong assurance over the accuracy of the workforce information published in the Annual Report.
