The Finance Department issued instructions to all departments to submit Action Taken Notes (ATNs) on various suggestions, observations and recommendations made by Public Accounts Committee (PAC) for their consideration within 15 days of presentation of the PAC’s Reports to the Legislature. The PAC’s Reports/recommendations are the principal medium by which the Legislature enforces financial accountability of the Executives to the Legislature and it is appropriate that they elicit timely response from the departments in the form of ATNs.

Audit Reports for the year up to 2011-12 had been discussed and the recommendations were made on the ARs for the year up to 2010-11. As of November 2019, ATNs had been received in respect of all 614 recommendations of the PAC, made for the Audit Reports for the years from 1990-91 to 2010-11.
