The role of the Public Accounts Committee is to examine "the accounts showing the appropriation of the sums granted by Parliament to meet the public expenditure, and of such other accounts laid before Parliament as the committee may think fit".

The Committee’s work is based on the reports of the National Audit Office (NAO), in particular their value for money studies of whether publicly-funded bodies are operating with economy, efficiency and effectiveness.
