Detail

The Cabinet Office requires Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs) to be reviewed every 3 years by their parent department.

The review considered how the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) can continue to deliver the government’s priorities for the environment with improved resilience in the face of current and future environmental and economic challenges.

The review concluded the functions JNCC carries out on behalf of government are currently necessary and it is broadly the right body for delivering those functions. JNCC’s current status as an Executive NDPB should remain. A number of specific changes to improve services to customers, drive increased efficiency, and secure environmental outcomes in a more collaborative way have been identified. The review also recognised the need to strengthen accountability to the governments of the UK and devolved administrations.

The report of the review is accompanied by a full assessment of the bodies’ compliance with the principles of good corporate governance.
