Financial management in the European Union by Great Britain( Book )

This NAO report examines the state of financial management in the European Union. It is divided into three parts, with appendices. Part one, looks at the background; Part two, presents key findings in respect of the main expenditure areas, irregularities and possible fraud; Part three, looks at improving the financial management. Amongst the findings and recommendations of the National Audit Office are: for 2005, the European Union's expenditure totalled £71.1 billion, with a revenue of £72.3 billion, and the UK's net contribution coming to £2.5 billion, comprising payments of £8.3 billion, with a £3.5 billion abatement. Against this background of financial contribution, was a report from the European Court of Auditors, in October 2006, which found the accounts of the European Union did reflect the revenue and expenditure for the year, but had noted some errors in relation to balance sheet items, which led the Court not to issue a Statement of Assurance, which confirms the legality and regularity of the European Community's expenditure. For the NAO, the main findings included the views of the European Court of Auditors, that financial management had been strengthened and consolidated. Further anti-fraud measures, as introduced by OLAF (the European Union's Anti-Fraud Office) had also been strengthened, and that European Union expenditure was not subject to excessive fraud. The NAO sees the success of gaining a Statement of Assurance, as linked to the implementation of the European Commission's action plan of simplifying the rules and regulations governing European Union programmes (as noted in the HCP 498, session 2004-05, ISBN 0215023870). The Court of Auditor's also noted some weaknesses in the UK's management and control of structural measures programmes, and the NAO states that relevant UK authorities should ensure their risk management arrangements focus on the need for proper control and management of European Union funds

Widening participation in higher education in England by John Bourn( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some progress is being made in encouraging under-represented groups to continue into higher education, but particular sections of society remain significantly under-represented and too little is known about the link between measures taken by institutions and any improvements in access. The attainment of qualifications at secondary school is the principal reason for the difference in participation rates but social class remains a strong determinant of higher education participation. Women are better represented than men and those from non-white ethnic groups are better represented than white people. The report finds that white people from lower socio-economic groups are the most under-represented group in higher education institutions. There are also significant variations between academic institutions in how good they are at widening participation. In 2006-07, one sixth of institutions made less progress than expected in recruiting students from areas with low participation. Those that became universities post-1992 generally do better than the Russell Group universities (an association of 20 self-selected major research intensive institutions). Incomplete data on student background hinders accurate assessment of which groups are under-represented. There is insufficient information about the full range of activities aimed at widening participation, making it difficult to identify which activities are most effective. Higher education is not always provided in ways that make it accessible to individuals from under-represented groups. Some students and potential students have limited understanding of the different types of financial support available to them. The Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills should lead efforts to create a comprehensive and accessible source of information to support potential applicants from under-represented groups
